This is awesome news, they also did not talk about it, but since no Lasix was used, it would appear we had no bleeders either.

Or they didn’t report their bleeders. It didn’t look like any horses stopped or were eased in the races?

Many trainers are still not convinced that no Lasix is best for racing. I am sure we would have heard news if a horse had bled.

Excellent!!! It puts all horses on the same playing field! I think the whip rule may have played a part as well as horses weren’t continually stressed to go faster?

Honestly the whip is not an issue because it is so soft and really only produces noise more than anything else. 
IMHO the whip rule is more for the public than anything else.

Well, it didn't help matters that she got run off her feet in the first half mile. That said, I was happy for Ce Ce
