A Hoboken411 reader wondered at what bar he can watch the pre-race coverage. I’m fairly certain that Three-A’s usually has the audio on for that, and am pretty certain that many of the smaller pubs would turn the audio on for this. Does anyone know some other places that plan to promote the race?

Also, here’s a quick poll. I took the top 5 odds (from bodoglife.com)…

No no no – not ‘whipping’…’tenderizing’.

I don’t eat horse meat, or “where” any clothes (horse or otherwise). Who eats horse meat outside of the freaks in Europe? 😆

Killing an animal quickly and efficiently to eat it is far different than causing the animal to hurt itself and then killing it because the injury is “most probably fatal.” Again, I’d like to euthenize the owner and jockey (after breaking their ankles).

The horse is not euthanized because it can not race, rather to save it an agonizing slow death.

This injury would result in any horse being euthanized, regardless of whether it was a race horse or not.

Simply put, a truly horrific injury.
