<< Actually, Tom, it is a phenomenon that many of us have observed for

Is this data you're talking about? Or are you just kidding?

That's one of the reasons why HR recovery is next to useless in a vet check.

But high enough on the priority list to attempt to prove a point here?

Really? I thought it all had to do with grants and funding. I've asked "how 
come" a couple hundred times when I've seen a horse break down on the track 
after direct veterinary attention--but nobody finds that  a high priority

pulses still seem to go to about the same point for a "top" HR--so the 
difference is bigger, but the end performance is about the same.>

That's a loosey-goosey observation. Have any actual data you can share?
