NEW MEXICO – This isn’t straight from the horse’s mouth, but the New Mexico Racing Commission says that trainer John Stinebaugh has been feeding his equines a drug that’s an ingredient in Viagra.

It supposedly makes them run faster. Stinebaugh is reportedly planning to appeal his 16 year suspension from the sport, $40,000 fine and prize forfeiture.
