There's only one place this thread can go, and it isn't going to be pretty.

Awwwww. The poor ticket brokers. We'll have to bail them out.

/wonders how much stud value the horse lost by not running
//yeah a lot less than if he had to be put down after the race

Story is dumb. There isn't a market for the ga tickets because they don't sell out. You just pay your 10 bucks at the gate.

Probably not much...it will be about the same as if he ran the race and lost. If it comes out that he did not bow and tendon and was pulled because they did not think he could pass his drug test, then it will drop somewhat (and that is what I think is really going on with him considering his trainer's and owner's shiatty reputations).

Also 3-1-2 on the tri looks nice in this.

The coverage for the belmont is really just an olympics commerical now, since they probably had to toss all of their prepped stuff. Which is funny in and of itself.

What a nice dad to cancel a trip to see his daughter over a horse being scratched.

No one really has an intrest in the Belmont without a chance for a Triple Crown winner if your not one of the few horse racing fans or a degenerate gambler.
