Chat about horses, racing, and the industry.
Are the owners and trainers being cruel? Is the horse in obvious pain? I am completely against running horses that have been medicated for pain relief just to keep them on the track. But it seems that people are judging the good and the bad of the decision to run based on the outcome of the race. Personally I see nothing wrong with running a sound horse regardless if the horse cannot perform up to its past abilities. Where is the outrage when the hurting $5,000 claimers are raced?

Oh I have outrage for the claimers too. You know he made the money already and he is just a stem cell commercial at this point. It was not just this race , it was when they announced his come back. No reason for it at all.
jmho but the problem lies in the perception, LM's bed was already made up and waiting for him at Old Friends and then wham, yanked out from under that doesn't play well in the press nowadays - motives and intent are certainly up for public scrutiny...
