The trainer for Long Weekend blames the Blue Runner Foods World Red Beans And Rice Eating Championship for the horse's poor result at the Fair Grounds Race Course in New Orleans.
"In a very strange set of circumstances, Fair Grounds had a red-beans-and-rice eating contest on the apron of the track," Amoss said. "They had all the big eaters. Joey Chestnut and, I mean, these were national guys. It was sponsored by a red-beans company, and there was a lot of activity and hoopla, and it spooked Long Weekend, and he got loose in the post parade."

    What an unusual and interesting story. Who would have thought that the interaction of a competitive eating contest and a horse race would result in a horse being spooked. Tsk tsk Joey Chestnut and others. Funny to me though not to the jockey, trainers and owners. Such a crazy world, competitive eating.

    LOL, that’s about the lamest excuse I’ve ever heard!
