They already altered one rule for that horse. He wasn't good enough. Everyone should get a participation ribbon!
Why would Smarty Jones owners be pissed and be able to sue?

Because he won the first two legs of the triple crown and lost at Belmont? Just like this horse? Why should (another) rule be changed either for this horse or future horses trying to win it? His times were significantly better than yesterday's, too.

Birdstone ran the Derby in the year when he beat Jones. It's really hard to win the crown it is quite a feat. Leave it as it has always been.

Right, the point is the rule doesn't need to be changed.

A triple crown winner should be a superhorse.

Didn't want to create a new thread.

Me neither. Odds are clearly against him. Can I change my vote from 6 weeks ago?

The Belmont favorite suffered a foot injury when he was bumped by the horse next to him while leaving the starting gate in Saturday's race, the Associated Press reports.
