    the horse running free is an example of a horse running at its own natural speed, not a horse being pushed past its limits by being shocked, whipped, and abused (Now I am not saying every race horse is abused, its just a lot of them are)

    What would have happened if the horse without a rider won? I’m genuinely curious

    • rubles

      The horse in second place with a jockey would've been named the winner. The horse without a jockey is carrying 120lbs less than the other horses so he has an unfair advantage.

    Would been a legal win if riderless had won?

    • rubles
      rubles 20 days ago

      No because he's not carrying the weight of a jockey on his back so he has an unfair advantage over the horses with riders.

    I love the fact that the horse who unseated his jockey completed the race. That genuinely would’ve been hilarious if that horse had crossed the line first.

      No because he's not carrying as much weight as the horses with riders so he obviously has a huge advantage.

    I watch these 3 races to see a triple crown. I dont care if a horse cut another horse off to win. People worry about horses getting injured by changing lanes need to look at how horses are drugged to run, in the USA(not allowed in Europe) and hundreds are killed by these injecting Doctors, Horses are than sold for meat. 🥩 Look up a recent story by Bernie on Real Sports on HBO

    Horse racing...the only business that kills animals in full view of the fans and they cheer on. Would love to see that in any other pro sport. On track fatalities are documented ON CAMERA and by the industry as well as under FOIL. do they get away with this. Lets add to that the thousands f TBs that were shipped to slaughter annually. Let's thank the pompous, arrogant industry and the mindless fans.

    For those who say these horses are forced to run is totally uneducated.
    Yes some are but most of the time these horses just LOVE to run. If the horses did not like to run then all the horses who lost there riders would have stopped and walked not kept on running.

    First of all he wasn’t thrown he fell off. Even so it’s amazing to see how well trained these horses are to keep running and go in the circle they are use to going in. A less trained horse would have probably run spermatic and made it dangerous for the other riders. I mean it sucks he fell off he stayed the pace and I’m sure with a rider he could have won or come close to winning I’m sure the horse was waiting for his cue to go. Either way interesting race congrats to the race horse who won. And I hope the rider who fell off is okay this has certainly been an interesting year for horse races

    I was in Vegas that weekend and yes I had money on Bodexpress (just $40 to Show).
    I was so pissed when I saw his jockey fly off of him at the start. I said "it figures."
    Then I thought "I want my $40 back!" (I tried for a refund later but the machine just said "Not a winner.")

    The good news is that I also had War Of Will to Win. So all's well that ends well!
    First time ever betting on the horses. I'll never forget it.

    What an unusual first 2 legs of the triple crown so far in 2019, first the weird ending of the Kentucky derby & now this. I have a feeling another fluke will happen in Belmont. why did the starter hold on to Bodexpress for so long which cause him to buck & an outrider entering the race to deter Bodexpress while he wasn't interfering the other horses. I have been watching all 3 legs of the triple crown race for the last several years but have not seen anything like this.

    Lol, I see all these comments about wanting the "riderless horse" to win. Unfortunately, even if Bodexpress had crossed the line first, he was basically disqualified as soon as he dumped his jockey. He wouldn't have been awarded anything.

    There are a lot of people who say that horse racing is mean. The riderless horse ruins that argument. Horses run because they love to and they are competitive when then run. It is natural for them.

      @Julya Flyer if horses were killed everytime they didnt win then we wouldnt of had a triple crown winner in 2015. American Pharoah lost his first race, and by your logic he would've been killed right away. You should probably learn more about horse racing before making dumb comments like yours.

    • Julya Flyer
      Julya Flyer Month ago

      It really isn't. And some jockeys are abusive. They whip the horse and they hurt it, horse also get killed if they do not win, and riders drug them just to win, this is why horse racing is abusive. It would be better if the horses didn't get whipped, killed, sold, drugged just for money. I say, not everyone is abusive, but a lot of jockeys are.

    Then waddled away ... didn’t check on his Jockey’s condition.

    It felt good to get out of the gate
    In the Preakness
    You can’t set a record time
    Because there ain’t no jockey riding you cross the line
