He went from having a a great workout yesterday , to coming up with tendinitis today?

I am no conspiracy theorist , but it doesnt help that his trainer is Doug O'Neill.

Unbelievable. Kick in the nuts for a great sport that needed a lift this Saturday. Wanted so bad to see a TC winner. Also drew I'll have another in the office pool Wends ... winning horse takes down $600. I had mentally spent that GD $ already.

Sucks.

Cliche alert: You make your own breaks.

This sport makes boxing look squeaky clean.

Crooked on so many levels. Why one would believe anything they see on a horse track after all these years is real is beyond me.

You want to fix horse racing , Lasix needs to be banned, #1 its a masking agent, and #2 it will force breeders to breed horses with better endurance and stamina, instead of concentrating on speed alone.

Next thing thing that needs to happen is a singular horse racing commission that has oversite over all tracks and breeding operations in the US and Canada.

Well, it's been 30 years of arguing for that in boxing and it ain't getting done. The answer is easy. Actually getting the guys getting wealthy beyond imagination to agree might be a different issue.

serves me right. I been a fan of Union Rags since I watched in person his great trip and place in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile last year. Bet him BIG in the Derby, and he had a horrible trip. I should have known better.

Hind site is 20 20 , but I was planning on putting some smart $ on Rags before Il have another was scratched. Liked his price then, didn't like it at 5/2.

If it wasnt for a bad trip at the Derby, Rags wins a triple crown. Cant wait for the Breeders Cup Classic. Rags v. Dullihan v. Bodiemiester v. Hansen should be a hell of a race.

Exciting race. Hit the exacta and the PS of my WPS to eke out a profit.

Had 9-3-4 trifecta ... did not box it, came out 3-9-4. Would have paid $248. F me.
