    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.

    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.

    The 2019 Belmont Stakes will consist of this: The best horses in the field will all be scratched before race day leaving War of Will to compete against a weak field again and Vekoma will be his best competition but in the final stretch, War of Will will come up behind Vekoma like he did Maximum Security and strike him in his hind legs at least 5 times causing Vekoma to break down and War of Will will cross the finish line first and his jockey will claim foul and get away with it. The euthanized horse, Vekoma, will be disqualified anyway. Then, War of Will supporters will start screeching about how War of Will would've won the Triple Crown had the incident with Maximum Security not have happened (lmao) and his team will avoid true competition, such as Maximum Security and Omaha Beach, as hard as they can just to ensure their horse can forever be known as the "CoUlD'vE bEeN tRiPlE cRoWn WiNnEr" or "bEsT hOrSe Of ThE 2019 tHrEe YeAr OlD cRoP."

    Bodexpress just ran *way* wide the whole way round without any jockey encouragement and didn’t interfere or place last. Do y’all realize how taxing it is to keep that pace going so wide? He kept up with all the others despite technically running a much longer distance and then had enough for a victory lap. He better go to the Belmont! I see a distance winner here 😁

    this horse really loves the rail as if it his dream ... only brave horse like this and winning this one truly right for his name, for to make a full speed in the inner rail is like overtaking in the right side instead of left side in an open highway and its dangerous ... a veteran jockey was unseated and that is unusual and i think what happened in Kentucky was still in writing until Belmont race, the confirmatory race who will be the braver of horse of this year ... thanks happy racing Sirs / Mam ... the winning jockey doing the right thing whipping at the right side as he is passing in the inner rail to not obstruct the pathway of his competitor, the usual that jockey should do who was subject of objection in Kentucky Derby

He’s holding onto his mouth, that caught him way off guard, jockey stood no chance. I love that horse 😂 he gave it a good go and so did the girl trying to catch him.
