When the horse is in the race the horse should not suffer from inflammations and pain which will decrease the performance on the race and slow down to lose the race.
The condition of the horse is more important but the use of therapeutic medications has various regulations in the racing world. The owners of the horse allow the riders to infuse drugs to increase the performance of the horse which is not legal at any case. Though the owners and the company reject this as false report they still use drugs to the horses to increase the performance to peak level.
