Readers Write – Triple Crown

Dear Editor:

It is very cruel and unreasonable for us to expect our good horses to race in three grueling races in five weeks!  These horses need time to recover and rebuild after each race.  Some horses are never the same after undergoing this excessive stress for a Triple Crown.  If we truly are against animal abuse, then this should not be allowed.

A possible solution would be to run the Derby the first week in May, the Preakness, the first week in June and the Belmont, the first week in July.  This would allow all horses the time to recover and rebuild.

Let’s all promote protecting our good horses by coming up with a reasonable race for the Triple Crown!
