That looked like Prefontaine at the Olympics. Should thrown that horse out front and run him till he dropped.

NBC still hasn't shown the finishing order of the race. Unbelievable. Stop showing California Chrome's idiot owners' faces and tell us where everyone finished.

He's exactly right but it's sour grapes at this point. They've been doing that for years. Way too much money involved to let the favorites run through the triple crown. I agree with him though. I'll probably never see a triple crown winner.

"either run in all triple crown races or dont run at all, horses laying out and being fresh for the upset is unfair"

that's how it's always been bub.

translation: you don't have a superhorse.

Instantly made me think of David Stern fining the Spurs for sitting starters last year (I think)

Gosh, sounds like a great idea. If it is too big a challenge, change the rules to make it easier. Heck, let's give all of them a trophy and call them all winners.

And that sir is why my All star trophy from Pony league baseball played in the Eau Claire area, remains priceless. Back in the day when trophies weren't just passed out so we can all feel good.

It's really hard for a horse to run 3 races in 5 weeks against the best competition in the world.....they'll never have to do that again during their careers. The next time some of these meet again will likely be in the Travers at Saratoga NY.....if you have never been there, you need to go. It's a beautiful town in upper NY during July and August each year with the best purses and the best horses anywhere in the country.

I have been to Saratoga. Had a $10 bet on the superfecta on the last race of the day. All were long shots and I had all four horses in order on the home stretch. Photo finish for 4th and I lost. I still think their computers told them there was a big payout and they switched the 4th place winner.

Due to all 4 horses being larger than 15-1 (one was 45-1) and a large field of horses, the payout was going to be $216,000 on my $10 bet.

Needless to say I got drunk after that.

Hell, I don't even think it would take that.

First off, I don't think they should change it if it has been done this way for the majority of the history of the races - I like being able to compare eras of athletes (and in this case animals) when much of the variables go unchanged.

It there was an idea to change the races to make it harder for them to target just one or two races, I would suggest they spread the triple crown races out more.

In theory, that would make it easier for the perspective horse to recover and refresh between the three races

I tend to agree on this proposal. And yes, even though "the sore loser" has a point, this has been the way of it for some time.
