I was raised up around Standardbreds my whole life....so when the horses are starting to go into training, if we see them peeing in their stall, we will start to whistle. That way when we get to the track and take them to the pee stall (or for pee test), we can whistle the same tune, and they relax a bit easier to go pee.
It doesn't always work right away, especially AFTER the race, because they are still pumped, but some will get into pee position 10 seconds after you start to whistle.
