The Hct is very slightly anemic and the ratio of hameglobin to hematocrit suggests hemolysis: broken red blood cells. This may be incidental from a poorly handled sample but if it is real, certainly will account for poor performance. For more on this see Diseases of Horses » Cardiovascular, Blood, and Immune System » The Diagnosis of Anemia.
