The Amazing Story Of A Mare Turned Horse.
When Arizona Helen lined up at the gate last night at the Meadowlands against a group of $20,000 claimers, only a few people would know the path this former pacing daughter of Arizona Jack took to get there.
As Trot Insider learned from Dr. Marc Knobbe of the New Bolton Center School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, the case of Arizona Helen could set an important benchmark going forward as more state and provincial racing commissions crack down on the use of anabolic steroids. – Standardbred Canada MORE>>
Penn's School of Veterinary Medicine is one of the world's premier veterinary schools. Founded in 1884, the School was built on the concept of Many Species, One Medicine. The birthplace of veterinary specialties, the School serves a distinctly diverse array of animal patients, from pets to horses to farm animals at our two campuses. In Philadelphia, on Penn's campus, are the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital for companion animals, as well as classrooms, laboratories and the School's administrative offices. The large-animal facility, New Bolton Center, in Kennett Square, Pa., encompasses hospital facilities for the care of horses and food animals as well as diagnostic laboratories serving the agriculture industry. The School has successfully integrated scholarship and scientific discovery with all aspects of veterinary medical education.
