why would a horse that raced a month ago in a $35,000 claiming race be entered tomorrow in a claiming race that's only $5,000? does that mean there's a physical issue with the horse? or are the owners and trainer just trying to unload her? Asking because a friend is looking at claiming a mare to retire her...the mare was entered last month for a $35,000 tag and is entered tomorrow at Finger Lakes for only a $5,000 tag...should I be suspicious?

It could be that there is something wrong, it could be they are trying to get rid of her, it could be that they realized she needed easier competition.
