After a hard race or workout, CK in the horse will climb to 250-350, so
running elevated CKs would suggest muscle damage. Cortisol normals have been
established and used for markers of physical or emotional stress. Glucose

in terms of recovery.

It is good that the other parameters you mentioned are being used.
