Hah, with feet like his, I'm not shocked. Chances are they'll run him whether or not he's injured.

Of course they will...........money is the more important than long term soundness.

Here's an article from today:

It's going to be an interesting race. It would be nice to have a Triple Crown winner, and hopefully they'll make an objective decision about Big Brown racing when the time comes.

i feel bad for these poor race horses :(

You know it's really no surprise, it's incredible how much stress these top horses go under. Horses are not meant to be pushed so hard. Wouldn't be surprised if something else happened to that poor guy.

I hope nothing happens to him tho

I really hope that he has a speedy recovery and is fine....sad part is that in a couple more years he will be useless as a race horse. Hopefully he can win big and retire with all the ladies he can service!

Hopefully at the end of his racing career he doesnt end up at an auction house or slaughtered like Ferdinand and Exceller.

To many good racehorses have given what their hearts out and have finished with severe injuries.
Will keep my fingers crossed that it doesnt also happen to him.
