What's the Fate of Horse Racing if Big Brown Gets Hurt at the Belmont?

Just asking.

His trainer says he's quite the picture.

But if Big Brown gets hurt at the Belmont, what then?

Congress, after all, is in an election year. Now that the House has fumbled the steroids affair and the NFL has blown heat by Senator Arlen Specter, what would happen in the third round of the U.S. versus Organized Sports?

You could imagine the drama, subpoenaing the likes of Mr. Ed and Affirmed to the hallowed halls of the House to testify before the various luminaries who serve our country with distinction. You could see the New York Post's headline now: "Horses vs. Horse's Asses." The public will want answers, and your elected officials will stop at nothing to get them for you.

But would anything really change?
