He'd make a great wrestling manager. Guy is right, and by his logic Wicked Strong should have won it handily.

Yes, the drug Lasix. It's hosed up and North American racing needs to clean up its act.

Well, they caught him in the heat of the moment with a lot of adrenaline crashing through his veins. He handled that really poorly, but it's not like I could've done better. :shrug:

He isn't wrong in the logic of it, doesn't mean it's going to change a thing when you have these other farms that are worth millions and millions that know exactly how to play the game.

I mean the dude has a point, there's a gigantic amount of horses compared to the last triple crown winner's environment, but that wasn't the way to get the point across.

That horses who haven't ran in the previous two out of three Triple Crown races run in the Belmont and spoil things for potential Triple Crown winners.

I don't blame him, I'd rant like that too. I was kinda surprised to learn that fresh horses would be in the field, but then I stopped looking into horse racing when I discovered some of the hosed up things going on. Hey, none of them have to be killed on the track though, good race :toot:

That it's bullshit to gently caress over his the chance at a Triple Crown by skipping the Derby & Preakness to run the Belmont on full rest against his horses that ran at least one of the two other big races in the past month.

It's not like that's not the way they've run the three races since forever. If horses can't win all three because there's more good horses competing...well, too bad? All the horses are fairly evenly matched? I don't exactly think they should rig it to make more Triple Crown winners.

It is bullshit. Imagine if you can sit your starters the whole season then just show up at the World Series/Stanley Cup/Super Bowl with your main guys who have been rested all season. It's loving garbage and it's no surprise that no one watches horse racing anymore.

Well that was certainly a wild emotional ride! I don't think I've ever seen a Triple Crown cycle this all over the place before.

It just went from :dance: to :neckbeard: to :ohdear: to :smith: to :stonk: in the span of like 10 minutes. My heart can't take this!
