Randy Moss (the other one) talks Belmont Stakes

Friday’s PFT Live included a visit from Randy Moss. Not that Randy Moss. The other Randy Moss.

And the other Randy Moss is very familiar with the Randy Moss references. At the outset of the segment, Randy Moss explained the only time he met Randy Moss. Which just so happened to be the day when Randy Moss complained loudly about the food being served to Vikings players, saying that he wouldn’t feed it to his dog.

The other Randy Moss then spent some time talking about the Belmont Stakes, along with an illuminating explanation regarding whether Justify’s pair of wins on sloppy tracks will make it harder for him — or for his opponents — to run the third leg of the Triple Crown, Saturday on NBC.

  1. If the NFL instituted the drug testing regimen that horse racing has, mandatory blood tests on every horse after every race, half the players would probably be suspended for the next games.
    With gambling on games now legal, I anticipate that could possibly be a step the gamblers will demand to ensure the integrity of their bets.

  2. I saw Secretariat’s race. One of the great ‘sports’ moments. I also saw Ruffian. One of the saddest sports moments. I also got to pet Forego (he was HUGE) one of the all time greats.

    But after Ruffian, I stopped. Not sure if it truly is a sport. But then they wouldn’t have been born if there wasn’t horse racing. Permanently conflicted.

    There is no mandatory blood testing in horse racing. There is urinalysis test after race, but it is not for every horse.

  4. no but it’s for the horses who hit the board: 1-2-3….which means the winners…after every race…so his point remains salient

    In football terms, the Eagles, Patriots, Jags and Vikings would be tested while everyone else …gets a pass.

    I don’t agree with it but that is how it would look if the NFL adopted this practice.

    Wrong again, If a heavy favorite finishes off the board, he may be tested, it’s up to the stewards. How can you say his point is salient? it is not a blood test and its not on every hores.

  7. I rodeo’d and worked at the race track as a young man, and I know that these animals are like any other finely tuned athlete operating at their peak. They have a personality and are full of themselves, and they love the competition just as much as we do. Something’s bad things happen to good horses. Sad, but life still has to be challenged. If you don’t want to get hurt don’t get out of bed, but as they say, most people die in bed. Secretariats run at the Preakness was out of this world. Watch it.

  8. Like I said I worked at the track, and at that time the first 3 horses were given urinalysis. I stood around after the last race talking to a friend who had a long rod with a cup on the end of it. You stand around waiting for the horse to answer the call, and catch some. Then we went out for a beer.

  9. Any of the above testing requirements could correct depending on the state the commenter is referencing. Testing requirements, allowed medications, etc. vary from state to state.
