Darn. Not a horse fan, but I always like seeing history.

Fox News’s website says the same thing.

He’s injured and will most likely never race again.

I’m not a betting man, but I’m curious....what happens to the bets on this horse now? Do they lose or just get canceled?

Injury is a legitimate, straightforward reason of course but when you consider the cloud of rumors and investigations already surrounding the trainer you have to wonder.

And if it was an injury wouldn’t it already be reported as such?

Horse racing, like boxing, needed a good story rather than another black eye. But horse racing, to paraphrase the late Bert Sugar’s comment about boxing, ran out of black eyes long ago.

The problem with the Belmont’s 1.5 mile length is that many owners don’t want to risk stud contracts if their horse should break down in the final leg of the Triple Crown.

Time to change the horse’s name to “Oh no you won’t!”

Injury or too many milkshakes?

Very suspicious.

Such sad news. I do hope he’ll be OK. It’s been a fantastic experience watching him come from behind in Kentucky and Preakness. O’Neill has my respect for what must have been a gut-wrenching decision. :(

Tendonnitis is developing in the front left leg. Sad, but I’m glad they made a conservative decision.

Glad they made the right decision.

It would have been very easy for them to stick him out there for one more race, even with the injury.

Good call.

I don't buy it.... Probably a cold calculation that an undefeated Derby and Preakness winner is worth more than a once defeated in the belmont one...

Wow. That sound you heard was the TV ratings crashing through the floor.
