Smashwords book reviews by Sharon Soileau

  • The Tradition of Cheating at the Sport of Kings on Feb. 13, 2012

    Glenn does an excellent job here of telling it like it is. I have been in his shoes on more than one occasion. The sport does need an overhaul and we need to start at the top. All racing jurisdictions need to unify and cooperate with each other instead of turning a blind eye. On the topic of lasix: Why is it that European horses can race without lasix and not "drop dead like flies" but it is believed here in the U.S. that horses will die by the dozens if lasix is taken away? What about the American horses that go overseas to compete without lasix? They seem to do just fine. The problem I see is the foreign horses coming here and being given lasix. "Trainers" should be horsemen first. Too many people holding a trainer's license know very little about managing a horse's health and/or injuries. It has become far too easy to call the vet and "fix" a problem. I sincerely hope this book opens the eyes of the people involved in racing that choose not to see what is going on.
