You have a bad habit of assuming the worst and speculating.
You're right, but when an owner pulls a triple crown favorite out of a race, then waits several hours to explain why, and both he and the trainer have been fined multiple times for horse doping and steroid use, it kinda looks a little suspect. Besides, if I assume the worst, and the best happens, I can never be let down
The trainer was all over the radio today - the horse has tendonitis that has flared up again and could cripple him for life. They are doing the right thing and retiring him, rather than risk a terrible injury that might result in the horse being put down.
Yeah, but was that before or after the owner paraded him around on tv, acknowledging that he was walking fine, and said that even if he ran it would likely not have an ill effect, and that it was a very minor injury in his words?
How cool is it that the people who stand the most to gain from a Triple Crown-winning performance actually put the health of an animal over their own personal interest?
Very cool, and if the story is true, I applaud it. I'm a huge animal lover.
It's amazing when someone actually does the right thing. You should be applauding instead of throwing out speculative guesses that assume the worst.
I base my assumption entirely on the history of those involved, and the owner's words.
It's like if someone had a long rap sheet for car theft, then he served his time and got out, then cars started turning up stolen in his neighborhood......whether he was involved or not, wouldn't it be fair to assume right off the bat it was him?
It's not exactly like these two were squeaky clean guys. They're shady. My assumption, based on the circumstances, was entirely fair in this situation.
