Attention All Trainers: Cool off your horses today!

To all the trainers running today in these warm, hot, humid or still conditions, or if requested by the state veterinarian, please:

  • Cool horses before and after races with cold water
  • Remove saddles and blinkers promptly after the race
  • Apply large amounts of cold water as soon as possible
  • Scrape off the water before walking back to the stable area (water remaining on horse’s back will hold in heat and inhibit cooling)
