It's labeled as an anabolic agent to help with appetite, stimulate, red cell production with kidney disease, and for sick and debilitated horses (and small animals). It's controlled so there's a paper trail, only can be Rx'd by a Veterinarian, that may, within all DEA guidelines prescribe if He/She feels it's needed. Of course there are illegal sources, and compounding pharmacies that fly under the wire.
Racing withdraw guidelines are based on clearance, I'M sure there will be US wide ban forthcoming, as in the UK.
Far More horses die each day from Gastrointestinal disease, then musculoskeletal disease/racing breakdowns. They aren't very well designed

The saying goes something like "if horses were cars they would all be recalled for defective GI systems":)
