He is just saying what a lot of us are already thinking. It is an unfair advantage to have horses run the Belmont who haven’t been in the Durby or Preakness. Chrome ran 3 races in 5 weeks!

You obviously don’t know one end of a horse from the other. IT’S BEEN DONE!@!@!

1) He knew the “rules” going in.
2) If he’s not paying the bills on the other horses in the race, he has no damn right to dictate when and/or where they should or shouldn’t race.
3) For someone’s who’s been in the business 6 years, he hasn’t learned a damn thing. Horses are not like machines. You can have every intention of starting a horse in a particular race. The horse may not agree.

Sorry but that is what makes the Triple Crown special. It is like winning a spelling contest against spelling champs, then winning a chess match against chess champs and finally winning a quiz against quiz champs. That would be a fantastic achievement. But its glory would be diminished if you said the opponents have to be the same for all three – spelling, chess and quiz.

Nothing to apologize for, he only spoke the truth.

I am glad he did but I completely understood where his anger and bitterness came from, it is hard to have those dreams snatched from your grasp so suddenly. I think he was swept up in emotion and I thought Robin Roberts on GMA was wrong to drop the hint that alcohol might have been involved by asking it it was a result of celebration. I thought her interview really held him on the mat unnecessarily. He was humbling himself (rightfully so) and she just kept trying to pin him, shame on you Robin.
