Big Brown...

I guess that horse is just like its new sponsor, UPS.

I haven't paid attention to events since the race (and really, the only reason I even watched the race was the Triple Crown implications).

Even so, I hope the horse is OK. It's hard to imagine such as finish without a bad outcome.
Every time you think you've become too cynical, the world finds a way to teach you that the real problem is that you haven't become cynical enough

Free speech is free speech is free speech. There is no qualifier.

If you aren't outraged, you aren't paying attention.

Never attribute malice to that what can be explained as stupidity.

Unborn lives matter too.

The Vets say that he is 100% healthy. I just think that it wasn't his day to race. He was rather jumpy in his stall earlier in the day. It was hot as hell out. The Belmont is a 1/4 mile longer than the Derby. Running 3 races in 5 weeks is a lot to expect from a horse as well.

Screw blaming it on the horse, the jockey pulled him up. What a rigged crock of shit horse racing is.

Well if Jockey ran the horse until he made himself lame the jockey would have caught holly hell for that too....
