A.S.: Of course. Although this is not always the case. Perhaps it is an excuse that is used too much, the horse that does not run in its value, arrives without a shoe to scales, and we cling to that as the cause of its bad performance. First of all, it has been proven that most of the time a horse that arrives after a race without a shoe has lost it after passing the finish line. Since they come from making a great effort in the race, it is later when they abandon or become unbalanced. On the other hand, there are other factors that influence a horse’s resentment when making an effort when it has lost its shoe, such as the quality of the hoof, the state of the ground, the moment it loses its shoe, etc. By this I do not mean that the loss of a shoe can not influence the outcome of a race, but it depends on many other factors that the loss of the shoe can be decisive in the outcome.
