I feel the same. All week I've been wanting it to be Saturday, and now that it's almost Saturday, I wish I could go back to Monday when I still thought IHA was our next great champion.
Sad news, but looking forward to seeing you race again soon, Hansen!
I really appreciate them pulling him out of the race. It would have been very easy with this injury for these guys to stay quiet about it and run him and only bring it up if IHA lost. Good look in stud and retirement, IHA!
I did a double take when I saw this. Very sad news, but the welfare of the horse is always most important. Thanks for scratching him rather than letting him run just for pride.
I think he meant 1991 which would have been the Belmont that Arazi won.
It's certainly an interesting point of view.
I think the key difference would be that if IHA wins, he'd be a Triple Crown winner. He's won big already. Other horses that have won lately have the Belmont as one of the only big wins on their record.
I wouldn't exactly call IHA a BIG late mover. He's been more of a stalker/mid-pack closer from what I've seen.
