So the winner of the Rich Strike derby was a gorgeous story in less than a week

I wish Vegas had given the public odds on how long Rich Strike’s story of good mood stays in a good mood. Although he didn’t turn to Cancel Town in the first 15 minutes after the race, he got there during the 15-minute glory of coach Eric Reed, so my bet on the lower ones would work.

The coach of the winning horse in Kentucky Derby, who had the worst odds on the field and was a late recruiter, was enjoying one of the biggest upsets in the history of the sport for all five days.

During a show on ESPN’s Behind the Lines – which is supposed to trigger Reed’s internal alarm – John Bar asked the coach about a humiliating tweet sent from Reed’s alleged Twitter account, @ daddyrabbit1964.

Uh, my boy, you don’t know how your Twitter account tweets something incredibly disgusting and misogynistic? Or don’t know how to tweet? However, he knows how to make his account private, which he did it upon receipt I understood.

Also, if this wasn’t your account, then why did Marty McGee of the Daily Racing Forum quote @ daddyrabbit1964 as his source for the news that Rich Strike will not be competing in The Preakness?

Reed simply has to admit that he tweeted, accept his status as a cult hero fighting for abolition in the Fox News crowd, and accept that his detractors / “haters” will probably always see him as that horse trainer. , who won the Derby with a long shot and was then kicked in the face In the style of Archibald Whitman from your own tweet.

There really isn’t much more to expand on with a man whose alleged biography on Twitter is “Horse Trainer and Conservative Reagan.” Fantasy football fanatic, owner of Mercury Equine Center.

It was probably a good idea to bet that your regular Kentucky horse trainer is a crazy MAGA clown, but Vegas didn’t give us a chance either.

Rich Strike’s jockey was fired for careless driving

If you had to ask me a question with many choices as to why the glorious ride on Rich Strike would not age well, from A. The horse was juice, B. The unknown trainer was canceled or C. The jockey was removed for careless driving, I would choose option A. I didn’t know it was almost D. All of the above.

No, Rich Strike didn’t have anything in its system that we know of, but jockey Sonny Leon still got a revocation for reckless driving in Ohio, his third ban for this particular fall violation, and his fifth overall for that time. Yahoo Sports.

There are many maneuvers that involve careless riding and most of them result from the intervention of another horse, intentionally or otherwise. (Consider putting a competitor on the rail.) Leon’s agent, Jeff Perrin, excuse him as “aggressive” driving and the mentioned jockeys are forced to make “judgment”.

Okay, of course, whatever. How about the other suspensions, according to the Kentucky Journal Courierthat the jockey received “for presenting false and altered documents from a physical examination of West Virginia stewards and for inflicting visible injuries on one of his jumps in the Mahoneing Valley by abusing his whip?”

This doesn’t sound like a call for judgment, but I’m not sure we should have expected well-tested candidates from Captain Asshole Clown with loose fingers on Twitter.

The biggest loser in all this, apart from fans of horse racing, is Rich Strike. He has done nothing wrong, he does not have the necessary mental capacity – or opposing thumbs – to shoot problematic tweets.

Now, he is not competing in Preakness, his owner is hastily checked on a Twitter donkey, and his jockey is a violator of serial rules. The whole world really loves Milkshake Duck.

If a horse was broken like a stick around Rich Strike, the trainers would have grazed it long ago.
