Breaking Stride and Fools

Prayers go out to Cat Manzi and Jason Bartlett who were involved in a serious spill at Freehold during the running of the sixth race. The two drivers got involved in an accident when All American Idol, who was on the lead at the top of the stretch went off stride. While no medical report has been released yet, Jason Bartlett was standing after the incident with Cat still on the ground.

One of my pet peeves has always been when you hear uninformed people claiming a driver made a horse break stride on purpose. They should be required to watch a race like today's race at Freehold to see what can happen when a horse jumps off stride and see if they still feel the same way. If they do, they should be shown the door and asked never to return.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Jason and Cat.
