dc.description.abstract Complex ventricular arrhythmias (CVA) were fairly common in Standardbred racehorses during the recovery period following races. Race conditions causing unusual demands (like attempting to take the lead or get back onto gait), harness racing at a trot, and punctuated deceleration (PD) are risk factors. en_US
