If you are on a really bad string of luck, is it a good idea to keep pressing and pushing the envelope? That's what the BC is doing.
The government can now SHUT IT DOWN in an instant if there is a safety concern in California. One bad incident in October or two and let's see how this goes. I don't want to see it but I'm concerned. And as Richiebee noted, don't ignore if there are problems at Del Mar.
Like it or not, 30 horses have perished out there.
I'm all for the changes on the medication front as they have made but I don't trust the surface. And how do the medication rules play out now? Do BC entrants only get 5cc of Lasix on race day and NO anti-inflammatories? Not sure I've seen the answer to this one. Curious if it affects some of the superstar trainers.
If nothing else, this will be interesting. We will find out if the BC chose poorly....or if they have chosen wisely.
