I felt like we were time traveling back to 1987 when Lady's Secret started behaving very strangely.

THAT was sickening!

No excuse for that SHIT. Between Johnny V and the track vet, do they share a brain and gave it the night off?

Luckily they talked about it on TV - everyone else at the track got screwed royally.

Vets never consulted with all that? Guess Johnny V is now the totally JERK jock of the day. Pletcher would be justified in punching his lights out right on the track.

The announcers were basically begging someone to do something, Pletcher and the vets have to answer for this, and Johnny V to a lesser extent

No way does a jock want to scratch at the gate in this type of race. The fact he said ANYTHING publicly let you know that Johnny V. thought something was DEFINITELY WRONG...probably more than he let on...

TV said stewards were ordering the Vet to take a second look.

You bet your money and you take your chances...only this time, we got a rare insight into what probably happens often at tracks everywhere.

He basically stiffed her out of the gate. Lame or not lame, once that gate opens you have to ride hard all the way. If you plan on protecting the horse all the way, don't run.

I give Johnny V alot of credit, he basically pulled her up, the horse is the most important thing, he didn't look like he was laughing at all

I loved her going into to this based on how she was working at CD.

Thank god for the Xpressbet cancel your wager button!!!! That saved me a bundle.

It was almost like someone drugged her.....I have been going to the track for 30 years and I don't recall ever seeing something like that.
