I know almost zero compared to many of you in here ....but ....I need to ask ?

I realize all the horses will be without Lasix for Belmont ....

Can you really use any past performances from previous Belmont Stakes races ?

All used Lasix ....

Imo .... you can't ...... but please let me know .....agree or disagree

Thanks all ..... and appreciate all the fine insight ....

Horses that were on a layoff were given Lasix; a diuretic, to elimate water weight to get their water weight down and return them quicker to the track and racing. 

But vò-LA. It was found to aid or abate, or prevent possibly respiratory conditions. Horses breath through their nose.

So. If we take a Little League team and one of the players uses an inhaler. And now a game does not allow it. One could surmise a yes.

But if all the kids on the team are using an inhaler it's physiologically mute. They will perform to their physical capabilities...good or poor.

So no Lasix for anybody..as Rodney Dangerfield might say..will provide a scenario that when the gate opens they will 'each' perform to their physical nature in that moment without pharmacology enhancement, needed, not needed, placebo.

Horses breath through their mouth.

I can’t tell from context if this is what you meant or not but they only breathe thru their mouths when they can’t breathe thru their noses.

OBW correction is correct as horses breath through their nose. Thus the saying an AM training blow out.

I have a question for you, my friend.  Why would you want to use Past Performances from previous Belmonts?  I can see using charts & watching videos for the purpose of observing & learning about effective running styles, to project some pace calculations, to get a sense for how jockeys who might be riding next week handled previous Belmonts.  

For example, the Past Performances for the 2018 Belmont, let's say, show all the races the entrants participated in leading up to the race so that the information can be used to handicap the 2018 Belmont.  What good is that information to handicap the 2021 Belmont?  I don't get it.

I could be misreading your post or maybe you mean something different than the usual definition of past performances.  That is why I ask the question, if you wouldn't mind clarifying.

Also, I cannot see how lasix in previous Belmonts have anything to do with this year's lasix free event.

Good luck next week to you & all who might see this.  :)

My review was of current contenders and their use or nonuse of lasix and I dont see its impact this year at all. Past Belmonts is not apples to apples at all.
