Horses with insufficient electrolytes risk loss of stamina and early onset of fatigue. Race Recovery™ replaces electrolytes lost by horses on furosemide (Lasix®) to reduce the downtime between fast works and races and replenish minerals lost through increased urination.
Break away from the pack with targeted electrolyte supplementation.
- Provides horses exercised on furosemide with targeted electrolyte supplementation
- Includes highly digestible forms of calcium and magnesium, two key minerals
- Palatable paste and powder formulas ensure consumption
Race Recovery is a system designed to strategically replenish electrolytes at critical times following exercise.
In a series of studies conducted by KER, researchers measured the effect of furosemide on urine and fecal excretion of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, and chloride in unexercised and exercised mature Thoroughbred geldings.
Furosemide causes a substantial loss of minerals, including a 40- to 50-fold increase in 4-hour urinary sodium and chloride loss and a sustained calcium loss over several days. With Race Recovery, mineral losses are entirely reversible. Race Recovery stimulates thirst and replaces body weight quickly. Race Recovery Powder is suitable for use as a daily electrolyte supplement.
Race Recovery is my preferred electrolyte for horses training and running on Lasix. The scientists at KER formulated Race Recovery to effectively replenish the calcium and other minerals treated horses lose. I rely on Race Recovery for Arrogate and other top horses in my stable.
Administer one tube (60 g) of Race Recovery Paste two to four hours after racing, or as soon as the horse returns to its stall, and a second tube later that night or the morning following the race. Beginning the day after the race, feed one scoop (60 g) of Race Recovery Powder twice a day mixed thoroughly in feed as the horse’s daily electrolyte supplement.
