Ford's revelation: Horses Snort Cocaine on high, too.

Revelation:  a surprising and previously unknown fact that has been disclosed to others.  "revelations about his personal life" disclosure, surprising fact, divulgence, declaration, utterance, announcement, report, news, leak, avowal;  acknowledgement, admission, confession
Horse Snort:  
1. a. A rough, noisy sound made by breathing forcefully through the nostrils, as a horse or pig does.
b. A similar sound: the snort of a steam engine.
2. Slang
a. A drink of liquor, especially when swallowed in one gulp.
b. Cocaine or heroin, especially a small amount sniffed at one time.
c. The liquor or drug so taken.
Cocaine: an addictive drug derived from coca or prepared synthetically, used as an illegal stimulant and sometimes medicinally as a local ANAESTHETIC (Last Chance for Animals).

Horses, the sound of snorting is a well know fact, one that is synonymous to the animal.   There is the other snort, one that is ominous, where some horses have been found to have Cocaine in their urine which suggests, strongly, someone has assisted the Thoroughbreds and pushed them into the Winner's circle illegally.

A Thoroughbred's racing life ends at six years old, quickly slaughtered, then are "managed" by well meaning entrepreneurs to find their way into our real hearts, via our dinner plates.  Horses also come to us in the form of a glue, leather products, our pet's food, or used for fraudulent insurance claims to benefit the owners.

Then there is the "Bambi" era, where horses get to live out their natural lives up to 21 years and THEN end up on our dinner plates, etc..   The up to 21 years category have discovered a new life, a rewarding life, one that continues their high level of training:    Stud for Service  AND/OR they are given a chance to continue earning high returns of pats on the backs for their owners.

In essence they have been sent down to the minors: the Chuckwagon circuit.
Globe and Mail:
ChuckWagon Racing 
According to veterinarians and drivers, most chuckwagon horses are former thoroughbred race horses whose careers on the track were over by age six, if not earlier. They are destined for the slaughterhouse, but instead end up pulling rigs competitively until they are 21.

The BC Racing Commission has all the facts on horse racing, like Hastings or Fraser Downs, but when it comes to Chuckwagon racing, there's little to go on because the sport doesn't include gambling, or does it?

The World Professional Chuckwagon Association has CanTest to look for illegally administered drugs.  Page 5 of  15, but where are the statistics that the public can see?

There are five horse race tracks in British Columbia. Five thousand licensed owners, jockeys, drivers, trainers, grooms and exercise persons participate in approximately 200 days of live racing in the province each year. See the table below for details.

In light of the Toronto's Mayor's recent Revelations and in conjunction with the "Cocaine Facts" document (2 copies) at the BC Legislative Library (above), they make it appear as though their reports are "persons" associated with Horse Racing.  We were correct, but not in the way that the BC Racing Commission covers the topic.

At a time of increased focus on drug testing in sports, one of the most controversial issues in horse racing might surprise the casual fan: How much cocaine should be allowed in a racehorse?

..... cocaine traces can go from the hands of a cocaine user to a horse, to the horse's bridle or to a railing that a horse might lick.

How are legal sources for Cocaine controlled????????? and doled out at race tracks?

Is it possible that the "legal sources" for the Thoroughbreds use, have been inadvertently snorted out,  to the nearby hapless trainers et al?

French police arrest 21 people after 200 horses deemed 'unfit for human consumption' hit dinner plates in France and 'several European countries'  - The Telegraph  December 17, 2013

 Meat from dozens of horses that were used by a French pharmaceutical firm to develop serums against rabies and other diseases is believed to have reached the food chain in France and perhaps Britain, it emerged on Monday.

Police on Monday arrested 21 people, including meat dealers, butchers and vets, in various locations in the south of France as part of a vast probe into the allegations.

The raids followed a tip-off which said that around 200 horses - including at least 60 that had been owned by pharmaceutical giant Sanofi Pasteur - had been sold to abattoirs since May 2011 with falsified veterinary papers.

More than 100 officers swooped on several Sanofi offices and at various abattoirs, including one in Gerona in northern Spain.

I asked about the odd-shaped farm building nearby: it was a smokehouse for horse carcass, which are rather tall when hung.

"Really?", I says.

"Really, many decades ago."
