How did they not DQ Bauti Boy today in the Objection with The X in Gulfstream R5. The race was a head bob photo finish. Coming into stretch, Nauti Boy bumps The X hard, pushing him out wide around turn. SHOCKED to see them not allow the objection!

I am not complaining about the Los Al DQ but man that feels like the 5 caused the initial issue and the 3 was best, I just dont see it.

Heck I could have gone with a double DQ since it felt like the 5 and the 3 both caused the 1 to be bumped

The 5 and 3 both fouled the 1. How you disqualify the 3 to give the win to the 5 is something I will never in a million years understand. IMHO, there are east coast jurisdictions that wouldn't have even looked at that race.

It was painfully obvious it was going to occur because the horse that finished 2nd was named after a man near and dear to Los Al.

The cheer that erupted and the winner's circle photo was ridiculous. I think they had to wait until the 2 stewards that vote for DQ made it down to winner's circle before they could take the photo. There were probably only 15-20 left at the track that weren't in the winner's circle.

I agree that if the 3 comes down, the 5 has to come down as the 5 made the initial contact. I thought it would have been cool to seek both Bafferts DQ'd for squeeing the 1.

Normally I'd laugh this stuff off, but I think this call was so bad nothing would surprise me. Only in North America could a horse that was at the very least partially responsible for the traffic problems be ELEVATED to first.

Absurd DQ decision. Baffling, irrational, and incorrect.

Delta Downs race 2 on 12/29

Any thoughts on leaving the 7 as the winner and not placing him second to the 4 horse? Delta Downs is a joke and I will never bet it again. I just wonder if others watching the replay and head on replay agree that the 7 did not cost the 4 first place.
