MIKE McMAHON AND JAMIE HILL have always had a taste for horses and bourbon. Both hail from
families with pedigrees in Thoroughbreds: Mike’s parents own McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds while Hill’s were the co-owners of 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew. The younger generation formed McMahon & Hill Bloodstock in 2001 and less than a decade later inaugurated the racing
syndicate Bourbon Lane Stable and the pinhooking syndicate Spruce Lane. All of their runners are given names that include the word “bourbon,” so it is no shock that McMahon and Hill have also decided to get into the business of spirits.
The symptoms of immune hemolytic anemia include pale or yellowish skin color, tiredness or fatigue, fast heartbeat or heart rate, shortness of breath, enlarged spleen, and dark urine. The disease is diagnosed by performing several tests. The following indicate that the patient is suffering from the disease: Coombs’ test turning out positive direct or indirect; increased bilirubin levels; increased LDH level (LDH are enzymes that increase when the body is experiencing tissue damage); presence of hemoglobin in the urine; decreased serum haptoglobin level; increased reticulocyte count; and decreased hemoglobin and RBC count.
