Gary did say something - upset the show was cancelled.  In one of the Luck threads I posted a link regarding the cancellation and it had alot of the people involved with the show's comments.  Of course I can't find it at the moment!

ETA - here is the link to the article with Gary's comments:

Gary's a good actor, so I hope he finds another good part to sink his teeth into.

I do think the incident with the filly was just an unfortunate accident but it came on the heels of the other two deaths and was just the last straw.  And to find out they were using old sick horses is just horrible.  I feel badly for all those who are out of work but safety comes first.

I agree, he was much better than Toby Maguire, and it would be interesting to see him in a non-horse related role.

What a class act Ramon is - he was thankful the horse didn't break down-which he thought she did.
Poor guy - it's not looking good for the Derby..

I'll have to wait until I get home to read this, but that's too bad, missing the Derby.

I saw a comment on another thread about that, if anyone on the racing channels commented, I missed it.  

Best guess? People close to this business accepted a long time ago that horses die on the track .  Maybe they think it would draw more hard core sports gamblers to racing, and it is true racing will die without betting.
