Horses are often forced to ingest a performance-enhancing mixture of liquids and baking powder prior to their races. This mixture elevates their heart rate, making them run faster, but it can also give them heart attacks on the track or moments aftewards. A tell-tale sign that a horse has been given this mixture is a post-race bleeding nose.
