  1. When he was 3, My Uncle and I almost claimed HomeboyKris. we knew he had issues. When I saw him listed and 20-1 I checked out his record but many hurt horses run one good one and 2 to 3 bad ones. He was due and when I saw that bet him hard I knew something was up. I would guarantee that he was injected with a legal medicine but at a higher level than allowed within 3 days to a race. When a horse takes money like that it is inside betting. If I had seen it i would have wanted to see it. He, like many geldings, for a short period of time was a stake horse and they run until they die sadly.
