    Preakness is today! How do you think it will go?

    I'm pulling for Maximum Security but I hope his trainer will put ear plugs in his ears so the roar of the crowd will not bother him. That's what his jockey said caused him to shy in the Derby. I think it will be an exciting race and I can't wait!

    Mark Casse says string halt has never been a lameness issue for War of Will.

    Fascinating to hear that no toilets worked when I in fact used a flushing toilet immediately after the big race and over the course of the weekend used working toilets in the clubhouse and grandstand. Women's ones at that!

    I did notice WOWs funny movement, stringhalt makes sense.

    Yes, it was a typo. Here's the corrected article:

    I knew a horse with stringhalt in the stable where I started lessons as a kid. He was the best jumper in the barn.

    I'm sure that is a typo and the article meant "are NOT a major cause for concern."

    Research into stringhalt has generally proven inconclusive. Some cases can be caused by toxicity, but others seemingly develop overnight. Treatments are varied, but most veterinarians agree that mild cases are a major cause for concern.[/QUOTE]

    It's not the bid deal you are making it out to be. The faster they go, the less obvious it is.

    Guess I would take that with a grain of salt.

    I’ve known quite a few OTTB with stringhalt, some case worse than others, that have gone on to be successful in eventing/jumping & barrel racing. None ever had issues due to it.

    Where'sMyWhite: You wondered why I used the word "cruel" to describe what happened to WoW in the Derby. You thought it was inaccurate because no person did harm to the horse. I was using the world "cruel" in the sense of the expression "cruel fate." I'm so glad he had a clear shot at the race in the Preakness and went on to win.

    So that's what string halt looks like? I never saw it before until WoW took those few odd steps.

    I chose to back Improbable before the race because of Baffert and Smith, but looking back on seeing him lose in the Arkansas Derby, I'm just not sure he has the will to win. Before the Preakness Baffert was quoted as saying in an ordinary situation he would never run a horse in a Classic race who has lost his last three races. I think the announcer had it right who describe that usually Baffert's horses ran to win because it was fun! Justify certainly seemed to be enjoying himself winning the Triple Crown as did AP!

    I'm looking forward to the Belmont. May all go well and horses and riders be safe.

    Fascinating. I stand corrected.

    Thanks Cammie and Mr. Casse for validating that I really did see something and am not just an obsessively over-reactive horse person.

    Well, there is truth to that. I certainly was not expecting an Oscar winning speech. I just thought she may have shown some joy rather that looking away with a blank expression. No matter, I it's just my personal opinion that a winner should show some happiness.!

    I've been in that position--where the person beside me is being interviewed and I'm just sort of standing there superfluous. A sudden TV interview can be daunting if you're not used to it. From my experience, a couple of things to consider.

    First, she probably didn't even realize that the camera was on her. Second, she was probably trying not to be a distraction so that her husband could concentrate on what he wanted to say. And third, she was probably listening intently to what Casse said so she wouldn't sound like an idiot on the off chance that the interviewer lobbed a question to her at the end. So in that moment, she had other things to concentrate on rather worrying about the expression on her face.

    The bugler at Santa Anita played it as I walked in yesterday and I thought the same thing. "Christmas tree?"

    Thanks for that. My favorite:
    "Much respect to Bodexpress for finishing the work day after the boss knocked off at 9:02 a.m."

    Wow, that's what I thought, but I know almost nothing about stringhalt other than an idea of what it looks like. So stringhalt did not stop him from being a classics winner!

    Seriously, that could have been ugly, I get it! I’m so relieved that it wasn’t and that the jockey is ok!!!
    1) No. I was too.
    2) Yes. I heard them say he did.
    3) I agree. There was another horse running in another race at Pimlico today, named Overdeliver. I guess Bodexpress could have been named that.
    4) I agree.
    5) Me too.
