    I feel much less confident after the second interview with the vet where he said say your prayers.   The blood supply thing is crucial.

    At least he's got a shot, which is about all we can ask for right now.

    A lot of us are - I think the Washington Post ran Ruffian's x-ray the next day.
    They can do much more today than they could then but they can't overcome a blood supply issue if indeed one exists.

    BYH, there was talk that druggies had killed Antley in some deal gone bad but I don't think that was ever determined to be fact.  LA Times did a long piece on it not long after he died that shed a lot of light on him and his struggles.  Interesting piece.  Dude could fucking ride.

    I just saw the lowlights on ESPNews. Jesus Christ that was awful.

    As Fenian said, the horse striding sideways will stick in the memory bank. As will the jockey weeping.

    Crap. I hope the horse is OK.

    They may have addressed this and I missed it - did the early departure have anything to do with this or is this just two very weird things to happen to the same horse? Don't know if he banged a hip on the door getting out the first time, which maybe threw off his stride ****

    Wasn't as gross as Kendall or Ventura, but that lower hind leg was definitely bending in a way it shouldn't

    Yeah but again: You didn't have to worry about Kendall or Ventura being put down that night.

    i broke my ankle 4 1/2  years ago, had surgery to have a plate attached. it still gives me daily discomfort. if i was a horse, i'd have been put down long ago. :'(

    try to avoid tempting punchlines, my friends. 8) 8)

    I wasn't comparing the drama, just the appearance.

    And no props for the Outfield?

    Gary Stevens said on the telecast from what he say, the prerace thing out of the gate was not a factor in what happened, in his opinion.

    If there are, they are idiots.

    doesn't seem like the right thread for punchlines.
