Keep driving horses with your hand hold behind your seat so if your horse stumbles or breaks. Boom canít do nothing. All Aaron merrimanís fault causing all that donít matter how good he is   Heís a moron for pushing a horse til he falls. He was all done breaks had no hand holds to hold and caused the whole thing. Should be fined and barred rest of year for driving !!!!!!

I generally like Merriman but gotta agree with your handhold analogy Clean.
Not sure about a year but seems punishable.

There's a difference between continuing 'chasing a horse' (rocking in the sulky) for maximum effort and driving a horse.  The horse was looped and tiring, and yet Aaron kept pushing his luck.  We all saw the event that occurred because of this effort.

I read Tyler had fluid on the brain, and abnormal fluid near his side. But he was conscious and talking.

Ah, I hadn't heard that. I hope he is mending well. I saw Merriman is off his drives tonight as well.

Burke's horse spit the bit at what, 3-5, and off favorable fractions. Desperate Man went a hell of a mile. Not sure why he was so far off the rail horse in front of him, nor what caused the break. Spotted the field plenty though, LOL.
