    that's a shame

      Yeah, that sucks. I give props to the owners/trainers for not pushing him though. My knowledge of horse racing is admittedly limited, but it seems like there's a real seedy side to it

        So the horse scratched for the equivalent of tennis elbow?

        According to NPR, this particular owner and trainer have been a bit sketchy in the past. Although, after looking around the Morning Edition page, I can't lay my hands on a the transcript.

          Glad we're not going to have another horse go down and have to be destroyed.

            I heard that too. ESPN Radio was saying they had unprecedented security and lock down procedures at the stables. But, of course, it had nothing to do with any specific people

              The trainer starts a 45 day ban on Monday and he is already banned from racing in Illinois. Heard someone trying to stand up for him and said it was not what "milkshake" he gave them, but when and how much...

              Running horses that young that hard should be illegal.

                He actually did nothing wrong ... but as the trainer he has to take the suspension.

                  The only things I know about horse racing come from Seabiscuit...is it really that bad for the horses? I thought it was mostly the jockeys who suffered.

                    There are lots of mixed opinions.

                      Having owned and trained horses myself (dressage, not racing) I am not a fan of horse racing.

                              Too bad.
                              He's a beautiful colt. Wouldn't think he'd be much good as a stud if prone to leg stress.

                              When did sports (actually just about anything) become all about not getting caught cheating?
                              I really hate where society is going sometimes.
