I haven't heard whether any other horses during the day's races at Ruidoso also suffered from dehydration. It's possible that there were, but we just haven't heard about them because they weren't high-profile winners.
That said, I do think that having two horses from the same barn exhibit the same issues is more than a coincidence. Could there be illicit substances involved? Maybe. Or maybe it's the case of a trainer, through either inexperience or the motivation of greed, pushed his horses too hard in getting them primed for an extreme effort.

I thought that when he was interviewed afterwards on TVG he was smiling too much and didn't show much concern for the horse. Just agreed he might have tied up a little. Of course if he was confident it wasn't serious, there was no sin in celebrating the win.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Demonstrative the top weight in Lonesome Glory

Summering at Saratoga proved time well spent for the seven-year-old gelding Demonstrative, who'll be favored to continue his recent success in Thursday's Grade 1, $150,000 Lonesome Glory Handicap, a 2 1/2-mile hurdle over Belmont Park's inner turf.

Colonial Downs starts its harness meet tomorrow (9/17 - 10/26), and they've got ostrich and camel races on Sunday. I guess that's a start :roll:

With each passing week in 2014 it becomes more apparent that this is the year of Yannick Gingras. The leading driver in the nation won six races on Little Brown Jug Day at the Delaware County Fairgrounds and topped it off with Limelight Beach in the 69th edition of the $647,500 Jug on Thursday afternoon.

Our Standardbred sale did very well this year, and one of our yearlings was sold to the trainer of 2013 Hambletonian winner Royalty For Life!

Mission Brief sets world record of 1:50.3 in International Stallion Stake

A quartet of Explosive Matter International Stallion Stakes were contested for 2-year-old trotting fillies on a bright and sunny Thursday afternoon (Oct. 2) at Lexington’s famed Red Mile.

In the second $80,550 division Mission Brief provided fans with another world record performance, trotting to a 1:50.3 mile with her nearest rival some 16 lengths behind her. Driver Yannick Gingras had the filly under wraps at the finish line in a simply electrifying mile over the red clay. The time was two-fifths of a second off the all-age record for distaffs in the sport of harness racing, set by 7-year-old mare Giant Diablo in 2007, also at The Red Mile.
