Re: [RC] Barbaro Update//Live Cover Rule--What Do You Think? - Beverley H. Kane, MD

I have been thinking about the live cover issue.
I have heard 1st hand from a vet who used to work at racing barns that this
rule gets violated. Does anyone think this rule is a good idea anyway?

Maybe Barbaro's predicament will mark a revolution in thinking about the
expense, trauma, and red tape of the TB industry breeding dogma, especially
now that DNA testing is widely available.

I highly recommend "$TUD: Adventures in Breeding" by Kevin Conley. The cover
horse, Storm Cat, earns a record $500,000 per tryst. I bet not even Bruce
Weary gets that.

It must be remembered that the TB industry ONLY allows live cover breeding
so it's not a matter of just keeping him alive, he has to be able to support
himself on his hind legs. I think they went into this with full knowledge
that even if they could save his life, live cover may never be possible.
