question on vets. are trainers free to choose their own vet or is there a pool of "track vets" that they must use?
Veterinarians must be licensed to work the stable area. Trainers can choose which vet they want to use from that group of vets.There are about five that work the stable area daily and another six or seven that are licensed and are here occasionally.For example there is a vet that does chiropractic work once a week.
