With regard to Curlin’s performance in Dubai, it should be noted that the horses he faced over there were incredibly sub-par. indicative of the state of the older male dirt handicap division this year. Both “races” were nothing more than well paid public workouts. With the retirement of so many of last years top 3 year olds including Street Sense, even a temporally steroid free Curlin could beat the plugs he faced there in a $4M race. This was a smart tactical move by his connections since the BC is in California this year on a synthetic surface in a state that will soon ban the presence of anabolic steroids in a horses’ blood on race day. IMO, there is little chance Curlin will race in the BC classic. Steve Assmussen, Curlin’s trainer and Rick Dutrow, Big Winstrol’s trainer, both annually vie for the title of top “super drug trainer”. Just Google their names if you want to read about their sordid histories, replete with many suspensions for administering performance enhancing drugs to their horses.
The use of anabolic steroids such as Winstrol may be associated with serious adverse reactions, many of which are dose related. Patients should be placed on the lowest possible effective dose. Medications that may interact with Winstrol include anticoagulants (blood thinners), insulin , or an oral diabetes medicine. Tell your doctor all medications you are taking. Winstrol is known to cause birth defects in a fetus. Do not take this medication if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. It is not known whether Winstrol is excreted in human milk. Many drugs are excreted in human milk and there is the potential for adverse reactions in nursing infants from anabolic steroids. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
