 Yes, well, I am  thinking of a racehorse . They are all insured. It's all about the money, no matter what they say about loving their horses.

no surprise either, but the horse ran and won , ...........trainer did not run,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and to take this away fr a deceased horse is more tragic. but guess , it's never the horse that gets the glory and doesn't know the difference, either.

I remain heartbroken Over the untimely death of this beautifuul  star-crossed horse.

I am doubly sad that his gritty derby win was taken away-- that victory showed

His heart and determination.That said, I am not surprised.

yes...am heartbroken. too. for Medina Spirit and sorry if I sounded less than as so angry that this was taken away from him. He will remain the winner in the hearts of many,as he WON......and that cannot be removed to punish a trainer, who only appears to love the ones who love him back, like A
P. This is a mockery of the Derby,as how can we trust those to follow?

 Sadly history will record him being disqualified, but those of us who  watched his gritty

determination know what a beautiful win  it was--- IMO it isnt fair to take that win away from him

to punish his trainer.  My heart hurts for this beautiful horse who should still be on

this earth.
