Network TV is not showing races for all us degenerates to record and replay and watch for subtle changes in race flow or pace or whatever. They are showing them for the non-race fan who might momentarily be interested in the outcome of a sporting event. So you don't need in-depth handicapping insights or deep-dish ticket management. Just sanitize it for the masses and we here will all be all right. I don't know of any social sidelight with regards to the Belmont (unlike the Derby, of course), but if there is one, and it gets some attention, so what?

I'm pretty sure we'll get Maggie and Acacia and Kinchen and maybe Andy and so forth, so no need for hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing over network coverage of horse racing.
