Can someone explain to me how hurdle races are even allowed? Belmont, race 1, half the field didn't finish. One horse vanned off, one euthanized on the track, four others did not finish. Maybe I'm missing something, but hurdle races have no appeal to me and I don't see the purpose in them.

Brutal race, way too dangerous for the horses and jocks, especially over 2 miles.

I HATE watching those type of races.  I always leave the room.
