Well Silver I admit that eliminating whips, Lasix and Pimlico will all have the same impact on improving the game...none. And let’s be honest, if the CD Stupards had left MaxSec up, and MaxSec was headed to Baltimore with a Triple Crown still possible, you would have your pom poms out celebrating the great tradition of the Triple Crown.
Crazy game the Wests had one runner cross the line first and another who was more or less Thorographically fastest in the race and ended up with bupkis/nada.
As far as Racing is concerned, too many tunnel visionaries at the helm, too many horseplayers who will continue to support an enterprise which ignores and abuses them. To me one of racing’s larger problems over the next 5-10 years is the uncertainty around those fighting Stronach’s future plans for GP, Laurel and SA.
I also bet the KMac/MDO maiden, she might end up back on the main track with decent results.
