Is there a differentiation made between a horse who is deemed unsound due to the race and one that is entered unsound? Is there even a way to determine that? Or does it matter? The owner of the horse running assumes the risk of injury or losing the horse through claim every time it runs. Is it right for the owner to have that risk after their horse is claimed? I agree with the intent to stop the bad guys, just wondering if in an attempt to stop the bad guys the good guys pay a price.
Seems as though it takes all the risk out of claiming a horse, which should be good for all but especially good for those with the most money. Just claim anything that can run a little, and it turns out after the race that wasn't such a good claim, throw it back.
OTOH if it keeps people from running a sore horse one last time just to try to get out from under it and not be the last person holding the bag, it is a victory for horses.
