Examines whether exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH) is detrimental to athletic performance of thoroughbred racehorses. Seven hundred and forty four Thoroughbred racehorses of both sexes were examined. Tracheobronchial examination was recorded on videotape and the severity of haemorrhage subsequently determined by three observers blinded to the horse’s identity and race performance.
