Update on Sugar Link

Sugar Link

Sugar LinkThis filly was just short of the two leaders, but pulled out all the stops…or rather, sent out all the stops…to finish in a solid third.  Racing officials have had cautionary discussions regarding the theories of Trainer Arnold Carb and his high starch diets.  Refusing to budge, the race committee has supplemented him with a supply of Pepto Bismol requiring him to treat Sugar Link prior to leaving the paddocks.  Wanting to save face with the public, Carb has obliged and spent the weeks leading up to the Preakness adjusting his routine to craft a new strategy that does not involve sabotaging fellow jockeys and emitting methane to dangerous flashpoint levels.
