They paid out on that race? I thought the rule was that if less than half the field finishes, the race is a no-contest. Delaware doesn't have that rule?

This was on their stewards reports http://dda.delaware.gov/pdfs/dtrc/daily ... 091417.pdf
The Stewards determined that the race should be declared a contest as the incident did not affect the order of the horses that did finish. Referring the pari-mutuel payouts made to the discretion of Delaware Park management, the Stewards made the result official.
Formally ELPHIE!

The longest shot in the field, a confirmed quitter, avoided all the carnage and won easily. The only other horse to finish, according to the Equibase chart, traveled through the stretch with the rider watching a loose horse and not, presumably, trying to close ground on the winner. How did the elimination of five of the seven horses in the field, including most of the logical contenders, NOT affect the order of finish?

Dumbfounded.

Top Fortitude did not finish the 6th race at Belmont. Pulled up, I think?

Chart says Top Fortitude "took bad step...fell heavily... then unfortunately had to be euthanized". :cry:

RIP Top Fortitude. Sad end for this horse who began his career so well.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

Submit went down in the stretch of the 9th at Belmont...looked like a severe injury. :(
ETA: TVG just relayed the sad news that Submit suffered catastrophic injury to her front leg and has been euthanized.

Several horses lost their riders in the 1st at Belmont. There They Go lost Arroya somewhere on the back stretch but kept running for the rest of the race; Shoot the Gap went down shortly before the wire, although he must have gotten up, because he crossed the wire minus rider a moment later. However, TVG just said that someone broke down on the backstretch, losing their rider, and maybe interfering with There They Go?
ETA: The TVG guys just said that it appears that all three riders are up and OK, AND all three horses seem uninjured, as well. :o
I do think the the original winner, Archival, may have been DQ'd for moving over on Shoot the Gap and causing that horse to clip heels and fall.

Irap was injured in the PA Derby, and I think it happened as he was crossing the wire. While I was watching the finish of that race, it looked like a bay horse stumbled/lost his stride going under the wire.
Irap has been taken off the track in the horse ambulance, per TVG.

IRAP 3 hour surgery successful, to stay at New Bolton for 2-4 weeks.

https://www.paulickreport.com/horse-car ... sesamoids/

According to drf.com, the surgery involved fusing the ankle joint and applying metal plates to the area to improve stability. Irap was woken up from the anesthesia in a pool of water, and “walked comfortably back to his stall.”

Plans call for Irap to remain at New Bolton for two to four weeks while the hospital team watches for signs of infection or laminitis, and when he is able, the colt will be flown back to California to continue his recovery.

She is ok. Her stifle locked up when she was bumped very hard at the start.

High Noon Cocktail just went down in a race shown on TVG. Since I was out of the room, I missed which track it was. :(

Glad to hear they used the recovery pool. It may not always be necessary, but it does seem to remove some of the risks of waking up from anesthesia.
