I was very happy to see they put the horse 1st. He is to lead the parade with his jockey up. I hope he goes on to breed a tripple crown winner. Mer

I have to agree...I was thrilled that they didn't try to push him. Good, selfless owners. :)

I'm glad they put the horse first, but with the trainer's upcoming suspension on drugging other horses, it seems a bit sketchy.
Reading Jim Squires' book Headless horsemen: a tale of chemical colts, subprime sales agents, and the last Kentucky Derby on steroids really opened my eyes a lot.

Despite the disappointment at I'll Have Another being scratched, I was ECSTATIC to watch Union Rags finally fulfill his potential. A very nice race.

I think they didn't want another Barbaro incident. Racing took a big PR hit over that tragedy.
However, if the general public really knew what goes on at racetracks on a daily basis, they would be absolutely horrified.
Yes, there are some ethical people involved in the racing industry but there are also a LOT of downright heartless and unscrupulous people there, too.

I personally feel that the Triple Crown races should be for four year olds, and that no horse should be raced before he is three. But as long as the money is more important than the horses, it will never happen.

I was pretty excited to see Bodiemeister be unraced until he was 3, and do so well, especially with such a high profile trainer as Baffert. Bodiemeister is a very nice horse--He was initially the one I was rooting for--but after IHA won, I couldn't help hoping this year would end up with a triple crown winner, and a 'second place' triple crown winner in Bodie--but unfortunately not so :(

I am also a HUGE fan of Bodiemeister and still believe he will achieve great great things. He's a game horse with a lot of speed and great breeding.

I believe that I'll Have Another was facing daily anti-doping testing procedures in New York due to his trainers past and they decided not to run him without whatever he had been given in previous training sessions. Similar to performance enhancing drug testing in the Olympics.

Tcthunder, your opinion does not surprise me. Seems like the racing industry is always trying to stay one step ahead of the testers with their chemical enhancements. I just recently stood in shock as a former "trainer" I know bold-facedly told a friend and me how they are using cone snail and poison dart frog venom in race horses, the effects are similar to cocaine and are currently untestable.
