Other Racing: Quarters, Harness, Jumps

I seem to remember a subforum on the old site devoted to racing posts about other types of horse racing, such as harness, Quarterhorses and jumps. Is there interest in resurrecting it?

Aw crap...from Paulick: Source at Ruidoso says condition of All American Futurity winner JM Miracle not good. In 2013 Ruidoso Futurity winner died of kidney failure
DRF's Mary Rampellini tweeted: He looked like he might have been a little overheated. What did you think?

Update from Mary R.: He was cooled down and vanned back to his barn as a precautionary measure, according to a release from Ruidoso Downs.

One horse in distress is one thing. A second horse from the same barn exhibiting the same problems? That's not a coincidence.
Sounds like clenbuterol overdose, but since I believe that drug is tested for, I wonder if the behind-the-curtain chemists have concocted something that gives the same boost, but which doesn't show up in the tests?
:evil:

I won't make any accusations, but it certainly is suspicious.

Hope the lab can identify it.

Judging by what I've read this morning on various sites (which is still not exactly in-depth), it sounds like the horses were suffering from a combo of heat and dehydration. That might indicate that there were no illegal substances involved, but IMHO, the after-affects of legal NSAIDS, bute and lasix in a horse's system, when it's hot and the horse gets badly fatigued and dehydrated, can still be very hard on a horse.
It's also possible that the high altitude amplified the horses' reactions to their intense efforts.
