Drugs at picnice races.
What is wrong with this story?
The horse had not won for 4 years and now alledgely boosted up with drugs wins, but what the trainer had more than likely done is prepare the horse
the fittest it has ever been for years, he thinks a "boost" will win the race, where in fact he put in a sound fitness program and would of won the race
When I won many successful big plunges back in the last 70's with my dogs, when I decided to set a dog for a plunge, in the 4 weeks
leading up to the race, I trained the dog up to peak in 100% fitness levels on the day.
Drugs don't work, because you see many trainers outed for drugging thier horse when in it ran unplaced.
The trained did not how to peak it in 100% fitness for that race and they did not get the money.
At least have your horse 100% fit and money on, if you are dumb enough to use drugs.
DRUGS DON'T WORK.
