I can't believe Goldikova wasn't taken down. Peslier oughta to be set down for two weeks, after launching a six-horse demolition derby. This wasn't a maiden claimer at Cahokia Downs. This was a major, multi-million-dollar race, and the Churchill Downs/Breeders Cup stewards brought shame to themselves and the game. Added to the ridiculous Thursday morning turf course closure which wrote finis to the chances of at least four strong European contenders, the display of arrogance and pettiness by officials turned the event into a tawdry exhibition instead of the sport's showcase, as it is intended to be.
