With regard to Curlin’s performance in Dubai, it should be noted that the horses he faced over there were incredibly sub-par. indicative of the state of the older male dirt handicap division this year. Both “races” were nothing more than well paid public workouts. With the retirement of so many of last years top 3 year olds including Street Sense, even a temporally steroid free Curlin could beat the plugs he faced there in a $4M race. This was a smart tactical move by his connections since the BC is in California this year on a synthetic surface in a state that will soon ban the presence of anabolic steroids in a horses’ blood on race day. IMO, there is little chance Curlin will race in the BC classic. Steve Assmussen, Curlin’s trainer and Rick Dutrow, Big Winstrol’s trainer, both annually vie for the title of top “super drug trainer”. Just Google their names if you want to read about their sordid histories, replete with many suspensions for administering performance enhancing drugs to their horses.

Of concern to any user of Winstrol during a cycle should be its intoxicating effect on the liver . The drug is a 17aa structured steroid , meaning it has been structured in a way which allows it to be orally bio-available, yet this has the negative effect of making Winstrol potentially harmful to the liver. It is therefore paramount the duration of a Winstrol cycle is limited, the dose of the drug is not excessive, the user does not stack it with other hepatotoxic compounds, does not drink alcohol whilst on cycle, and does not use Winstrol if they have an underlying medical condition which effects the livers health. There are supplements available which also help protect the liver (Milk Thistle, Liv-52 etc), and these would be advisable during any Winstrol cycle .
