Or is this not allowed in the Derby the way it is now not allowed in the Breeders' Cup?

Even without it, I give him a big shot.
The cream of this year's crop is at best already soured.

Brisnet's PPs do not show Thunder Snow using Lasix in the UAE - but equibase's entries to do not show him as "L1," as they would have if he was first-time Lasix.

So who's right?

a sad start - what causes a racehorse to buck like that?

Girth slipped.

Just be thankful it happened there and not when he was ahead of 10- 15 horses.

There's no indication the girth slipped.

Everyone is guessing why he did what he did (others guessed too tight of a girth), but the person in the position to know what happened - the jockey - said he has no idea what caused it.

He didn't win the Derby, but the Jock is now All around Bronc Riding Champion for the State of Kentucky 👍👀

He was due to "bounce."

It will be pretty sweet when he and Epicharis finish 1-2 in the Belmont.
