Race Today™ Horse Medicine FAQ

R: There are a few things that can work against Race Today™ and slow down results. Since it is a healing process, anything that has blood-thinning side effects can keep the lungs from healing all the way. If you have been feeding Race Today™ for over a month and your horse is still showing signs of bleeding, you may have to check any other horse medicine or supplements that you are giving.

Some common ingredients that have blood thinning side effects are:

  • Oil or pellets high in oil (especially Omega and Flax) *Soy as a minor ingredient is okay
  • MSM
  • Magnesium
  • Herbs (for example: Turmeric, Fenugreek, Licorice, Grapefruit, Garlic, and Devil’s Claw)
  • Ulcer Medications—do not feed Race Today™ in the same feeding (slippery elm, marshmallow, Ulcergard, sucralfate)

NOTE: most horses are fine using these supplements in addition to Race Today, however if your horse is not showing the results you expect after being consistently on Race Today for over a month, these could be the cause
