Oh no, not human error... we have enough of a mess already.

I'm so happy that War of Will won, that will cause amazing drama for the rest of the year. Did Owen get up for second, I hope?

EDIT: No, it was Everfast. RIP my wallet.

CONTROVERSY!!!!

Before we get mired in that slop, that was a heck of a ride by Gaffalione.

WAR OF WILL!

Calumet's Everfast gets up for second!

Barber should take West up on his gracious offer.

Congrats to Tyler Gaffalione! Great ride by him and great job by War of Will who didn't seem affected at all by his experience two weeks ago. Brave little horse.

That was a great trip and I don't think it will come back very fast on figures, but I believe that was a very strong effort given the horses who got up for second and third. No other speed stuck around at the end. A very nice horse, and it's what he deserves for saving the sport two weeks ago!

I wouldn't give that clown the time of day. If Maximum Security loses he'll come up with another reason why he got cheated somehow.

Gotta say, this has made me really like War of Will! Rooting for him to continue winning, what a gutsy horse!

Well War of Will is lame. Or at least off. Right hind. That.... doesn't look good. At all.

why are they parading him around with his jockey on? He does look off. Was coming to say the same thing.

Alright, what's going to happen during the Belmont? I vote the starting gate tractor dies and they have to forfeit the race.

Get the damn Jockey off of him, is nobody else noticing. :shock:

Actually... he looks a bit better now. Maybe he was just cramping up a bit.

Edit to say: nope! Still lame. Jesus christ... he is moving his right hind in a circle instead of straight forward.

Ahh he isn't off. He is the horse that has stringhalt. I forgot it was him.

2 gates malfunction and the race is deemed void.

I was wondering if it was partly due to the tail string on the cooler, it's all bunched in his tail too. Glad he's not lame!

Aaaaaah, I had no idea he has stringhalt. That explains it. Thank you Flanders!

Let's go big- all gates malfunction and they awkwardly back the horses out and go home. I can dig it.

Signalman is the stringhalt horse, right? I only caught War of Will when he was looking okay, but it certainly wouldn't surprise me if he had a hind leg issue. Hope he's okay. EDIT: Nope, they both have had it. Never mind!
