I have no problem with PETA being investigated. But it's hard to believe one industry for attacking the other on the basis: They kill animals and have no ethics! Which industry are you talking about?Rachel, I like the "Balsi" label.
One reason Zenyatta had more in the tank is because she was a come-from-behinder and she was brilliantly trained. Front runners run hard almost the entire race. Zenyatta only ran hard the last quarter-mile of a race. And her strategy was to just win the race. She didn't try to win by five lengths, a neck win was enough. Save some of that energy for the next race.
Blasi is a scapegoat and not the root of the problem. I've come to the conclusion racing is going to die sooner than later. No one is interested in cleaning up. It's just hilarious. and at this point I am going to cheer when it goes away. Shooting the messenger and not dealing with the problems isn't helping the horses or anyone else. Did anyone bother to read the stories above by Gretchen Jackson or TDN to see what the rest of the world thinks about us or what good owners think should happen. I doubt it because it doesn't involve shooting the messenger. I'm done with the whining excuses. I guarantee you also that Blasi is still on the payroll, he knows too much. I'm just done. Asmussen should have been gone way before this new video. I hate to see the fallout if Asmussen's horse wins the derby or the Oaks. I'm sure the network is already writing the story. I'm done.
