Gate to Wire
The Bucket of Stuff
Show Notes

A career dedicated to the improvement of horse health, welfare, and performance all started with a $300 bet, or investment if you will in a bucket of stuff. Justin Sallusto has a good heart, and that heart prompted him to feel for an older salesman trying to sell a bag of stuff he claimed was all natural and could help a horse. The rest has become horse health history and led Justin, a Grade 1 winning trainer into a venture that led him on a path to improve horse health and performance through nutrition and without the use of drugs.

On this episode of Past the Wire's podcast, Gate to Wire, brought to you by Spendthrift Farm you will meet Justin and hear how it all started. Justin has been around the racetrack a long time and has his share of racetrack tales and he did share a few with us.

Hear Justin's take on bleeding, Lasix, race day medications and a variety of other horse health and welfare topics including what constitutes a performance enhancer. We'll go back in time and explore horse health and how the thoroughbred of today is different from the thoroughbred of yesterday. 

You'll also hear about some of the Kingdom Nutrition Company products and what Justin claims they can do, and the examples of when and how they worked at every level of the game. 

This is an interesting show not only for owners, trainers, and breeders, but also fans and handicappers as there is a lot of knowledge and experience shared. Thank you for tuning in. You can listen to the podcast below or watch the Past the Wire TV YouTube version as well. Whatever works:
