Yes. The nasal strips were banned about 2 weeks ago. It's supposed to prevent bleeding in the lungs and allow better airflow. He wore them in the Derby and Preakness then they banned it for the Belmont for him. But they are able to use INJECTIONS to prevent lung bleeding, just not a non-invasive product that is way safer to use. *headdesk*
Just seems odd that they scratch him now. I just am wondering if he's not working the way he was with the nasal strips, so they are pulling him to prevent embarrassment and blaming it on an injury.
Plus from what I've read and heard...it "could be" tendinitis. There is no definite answer to whether he actually HAS it right now. I'm watching HRTV right now...Which is where I'm hearing this stuff about him.
I tend to be a pretty skeptical person anyways.
