Horror at Saratoga Harness

According to the chart, Mikibytheseaside and Odds On Blockchain were “DNFs” (did not finish) in the 10th at Saratoga Harness Saturday. That’s it. According to the Gaming Commission, this was but an “accident/collision” – nothing more (i.e., no deaths). While it’s possible that both horses survived, I sincerely doubt it (see this on other NY irregularities this year).

  1. I have taught horses to harness. I never used blinders or blinkers. I always wanted the horse to have minimal equipment on him or her.

Always disliked all the equipment used on harness racing horses.
