Was just reading Pletchers comments.  He is right.

"  ...we have to continue to work harder and do better at this. It’s a crisis. In racing, a lot of times, we get through one crisis and then we kind of coast. We can’t let our foot off the pedal. We have to get this thing sorted out and do a lot better than we’re doing now.”

That's the way to treat them right - give them a nice break at the farm.

Darn it...it was bad enough we all were holding our breaths for the BC races to be completed safely...then the breakdown. 

For the casual horse racing fan and what apparently happened according to this article, I fear the end of horse racing could come, at least in California.

I forgot as well and have been reading all the great sections in the Blood Horse Breeders' Cup Issue... read about it in BH. Belvoir Bay...a brave lady!

I was reading this last night.

Pretty harsh.  I'm not sure what to think.    Some horses were scratched that seemed okay, and this one got a pass but a lot of people thought he looked off.
