From time to time we will branch off from the world of gaming to bring to you our viewers issues we see fit to discuss. Now, I’m a fan of the Triple Crown Running and like to see the excitement which is The Kentucky Derby, The Preakness and The Belmont. But when is winning more important that pushing an animal to the limit?

On live television the Philly Filly, Eight Belles was euthanized in front of a national audience. While the winner’s of “The Kentucky Derby” were celebrating, a compound fracture in her front two legs served to be too painful for the number 5 horse, which led to her demise. Should these “sporting” events not be televised live because of the unknown? When you deal with situations such as these where the outcome’s are not scripted maybe Horse Races should have a 15 second delay like talk radio.

What is your feeling on the race results, and how should they be handled in the future?
