At this rate I’m trying to decide if I should mute half my feed for the next two weeks or enjoy the free entertainment
Just mute it. So not worth it.
A bruise is definitely more worrying than scratches, but also not the end of the world. No offense to Baffert, but I’m going to trust the vet’s word over his for now. It’s shit like this that makes me still feel a little iffy about the whole situation, but again, all we can do is wait.
To add to the confusion the story might have come from someone in PETA. And yeah I’m not sure how to handle that if it’s true that it came from someone from them.
I agree vet trumps Baffert. But PETA has been known to blatantly lie about stuff before so now I’m just confused.
Hold on, no – the comments that Justify is a) currently sound and b) did not appear to have scratches but was recovering from a heel bruise came from Dr. Mary Scollay, the KHRC vet, and Dr. Kevin Dunlavy, Justify’s vet. PETA kickstarted this idiotic “investigation,” but the reports about Justify’s health are coming through reputable racing news sources and from legit vets.
Thanks for the clarification. My feeds a bit jumbled I think and with it being end of finals I think I got things more confused then I normally would.
Still going to hit hide post when Justify stuff comes up for the next two weeks just for my sanity’s sake at the moment. I think if I don’t it’s going to cause me stress since I have nothing else to really distract me till the Preakness.
