If one wants to honestly play by the rules as they now exist, the question
is not whether they test are not, but whether they are normally found in the
horse, and in what quantity.

They know so well, they don't ever eat poisonous plants. Despite potential
problems with an all alfalfa diet, guess which hay the horse will eat. Put a
50 lb sack of grain and bale of grass hay in front of then and see if the
horses know which one to eat.
