The MSOA recently posted a notice that the Pa testing lab has detected Capsaicin
The MSOA said that the use of Capsaicin is discouraged with horses participating at all tracks in the Commonwealth.
I contacted the RMTC and they informed me that Capsaicin is a very strong
analgesic and that a test has been developed to detect it.

Thank you to the MSOA for publishing this information before a postive is called.
Thank you to the Pa testing lab for giving us a heads up before calling the substance.
Thanks to the RMTC for not being secretive and answering my query quickly and honestly.

I think this very interesting.

Don't understand why they are doing it.

Isn't it just red pepper?

Topical application?

RMTC says that it is a "strong" analgesic.
20 years ago the Pa lab started calling benzocaine positives.  It took us a few weeks to figure out that the benzocaine was in mineral ice and many of us were using mineral ice.  Some of us were lucky enough not to win. 
I consider it a GIANT step forward for the lab to notify us and for Kim Hankins and the MSOA board to get the information out to us without delay.

I agree the concept of the labs not setting up is a good thing.

And thank you for the info.

hmmm last week I severely sprained a ligament in my knee.  (Ended up in the ER, been hobbling around in a brace)  Been icing it all week, now ready for some linament.  I was going to try capsaicin.  I'll let you know how well it works... and please let it be as strong as advertised!

I've used it on my back a time or two.  It really, really gets hot.  Be very careful to wash your hands afterward and definintly don't touch your eyes until you are sure it is all washed off your hands.

Don't be "old school," instead wear a pair of latex gloves while applying it.  Get rid of the gloves immediately AND wash your hands thoroughly anyway.

Stuff just seems to find your eye...and IT BURNS!

Better to take as many precautions as possible.

Be really careful if you have to pee.  Terrible tribal dance if you get some on it.

I don't think OGM has quite the same issues as you or me in that regard.  Haven't had that happen to me personally, but have heard the horror stories.

  Reminds me of the time I was dicing up jalapeno peppers.  Later that evening I got to witness that tribal dance you speak of.   Roll Eyes

They have always had a test for DMSO but have not been calling it.  Have they said that they are going to call it?

I have used several dmso jugs in the last year. 60 cc in a one litre jug.  I suppose that we are going to have to find out what you can and can not use.
Let me know what  you find out.
thanks.

Good Job, Thanks for the heads up.  One warning was issued for 35 ccs in the jug day before.
A vet told me that 60ccs in the jug 48 hours out should not be a problem, but I am looking for better information then that.  Let me know if you hear anything else.
