    There are no words for how disapointed I am :'( I am glad that they are doing what is best for the horse. Hopefully, he will recover and live a full life even if he doesn't race again

    I am very sad that there will be no Triple Crown winner this year
    If the horse has an injury. They take that seriously and don't want to take a risk
    That the horse will break down
    I feel bad for every one involved

    It is the nasal strips which hold the nostrils open that have been banned. Performance enhancig???/. We use them in eventing all the time.

    Personally, I don't think they are all that effective and that people using them are, well.....suckers.

    Somehow this is all my fault......according to my husband, lol. This morning GMA opened with a bit about the race, his chances, etc and there was a teaser clip of the trainer saying, "As long as we don't have any injuries or anything, I think our chances are great" -- and I said, "Well, way to go, dumbass - now we'll have the injury announcement by noon....."
    All I got from DH when the news broke was, "See what you did..............."

    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.
