Horse Says I'm Innocent, I Didn't Take EPO

elapid said:
EPO hits horse racing and trainers declare their horses (and themselves) are innocent. Nothing much to do with cycling I know (unless you count the horse v McEwen contests), but just another sport where doping is rife. Imagine the costs of doping a horse with EPO!

Lol...will the horse go on a campaign of town halls to discredit the lab. It'll just trot into the town hall with slides on its back saying that all the other horses have no faith in the testing procedures.

It's a violation of animal rights, people nowadays have no respect for privacy anymore. After breeding and assisting in giving labor, they continue to encroach the animal's personal sphere.

I bet it entered the horse's body after a fat smacker from a voluptuous, big hipped mare...

I know for FACT, that horse had significant dietary changes. He had systemic allergies to hay, so he had a diet rich in alfalfa and apples - a diet rich in phytosterols. What's next, a false positives for steroids?

I'm sure the horse had a TUE!

Anyway, isn't he the most tested horse on the planet?

Where's this horse's media manager?

:D

A corticosteroid will fix that....... along with a significant donation to the Australian Turf Club to fight doping in equestrian events. :p

Clearly none of you are up to speed on this issue. This horse was tested with the human EPO test, by people with no vet training, and the lab itself is not to be trusted. This is clearly a porrly performed test by a lab with suspect quality and motives. It is also against horse rights!

Lol...will the horse lose stud rights for a year?

A stud stallion perhaps, showing little flair but lots of pure strenght, and after a miraculous come-back from a life treathening crippled leg, the tri-galloper is intent on crushing his opponents by chasing them down and whinny the zip-the-lip gesture...

He is now supposedly passing out yellow-black bridles and bits, to raise crippled leg awarenes...

Anyway, the showjumping Ludger Beerbaum allegedly said, and uncovering some of the motives behind doping:

Die nach Diskussionen um Manipulationen im Pferdesport eingesetzte Kommission unter Vorsitz des ehemaligen Verfassungsrichters Udo Steiner empfiehlt, dass Beerbaum, sein Angestellter Marco Kutscher und der Wiesbadener Daniel Deußer „jede medizinisch indizierte Maßnahme“ der Behandlung ihrer Spitzenpferde bis zum 31. Dezember 2011 mit dem Mannschaftstierarzt und dem Bundestrainer absprechen müssen. Beerbaum hatte sich öffentlich dazu bekannt, er habe früher nach der Haltung gehandelt: Erlaubt ist, was nicht gefunden wird.
Source

Beerbaum was quoted in the respected German Sunday newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeinen as saying that over the years his aim "was to exhaust everything possible ... I had the attitude that anything that will not be detected is allowed ... I can do what I like as long as I don't get found out."

How would the line of defense 'What am I on? I'm on my bike busting my *** six hours a day' translate in equestrian terminology?

I have no time to dope you fools! I am either training, sleeping, or eating organic hay and wheat grass. I am also smarter, as I always check out each new course (that is the same as the old course) before the race. And finally a shout out to Nike for supplying me with the most technologically advanced horseshoes.

The "tip off" that the horse was on human EPO was that he ran the whole race on 2 legs!
