Trainer Mark Casse, a seven-time winner of Canada’s Sovereign Award as outstanding trainer who has also had great success in the United States, including two Breeders’ Cup wins this year, gave his opinion on Lasix in an interview by Karen M. Johnson published on Thoroughbred Racing Commentary.

Among the topics Casse addressed was the view of bettors when it comes to Lasix, saying, “I read so much about how our bettors don’t like Lasix, and that’s all baloney. The recent Daily Racing Form survey would agree with me. I know some of the biggest bettors in North America, and I’ve asked them, and they said, ‘No. We’re more concerned with the on and off Lasix, because if everybody is on Lasix, it’s a fair playing field.’”

Casse also added, “The day they come up with a better idea than Lasix, I’m fine with that. But first we have to have it.

“The other thing, to sit and listen to all this nonsense about how Lasix has made our horses not able to run much. There are no statistics that confirm that.”
