    Big Brown's loss may have been due to loose shoe...

    Here's an ESPN article about what may have been behind Big Brown's loss:

    I'll bet Kent Desromeaux is breathing a sigh of relief. I still praise him for pulling the horse up.
    My question is, how could Dutrow's vet just assume that running on a loose shoe may not have been a big deal?
    I'm also happy to hear that, with the exception of Lasix, Iavarone's stable is going drug-free. Now, if he'd just fire Dutrow and hire someone with some integrity...

    That's interesting, I've been wondering if they'd found anything since the race.

    A few days ago I saw a picture of Big Brown's cracked hoof and it did not look good at all. I remember him getting clearance from the vet though. A loose shoe and cracked hoof = no bueno.

    I wonder if he got clearance from the same vet that said running on a loose shoe probably didn't affect how he raced...
