I used to love watching the Kentucky Derby and I also used to go to Pimlico and to Laurel racetracks in Maryland when I lived there. But I can't watch anymore...not since horses started sustaining life ending injuries. I don't know what's going on with the breeding programs these days but it seems to me that their legs aren't as strong as they used to be.

That is a good observation. It could be something with dietary changes - due too new trends. However, we don't have any accurate statistics giving the number of horses that get injured within and out of races. Overall, thank you, for taking the time to posy to my comments - today.

I've never known why there's such a hype over a two-minute horse race. Ah, well. To each his own. :)
