The Racing Form/Equibase rep who feeds ThoroGraph with
it's ground loss and race-specific information at Monmouth Park is doing a merely adequate job. [I'm being kind.] The job Ragozin's rep does there is vastly superior.

Reference is made to TWENTYFRST CENTURY's debut. That's
June 10, Monmouth's 10th. [The Racing Form pp line is in
Wednesday, June 23rd's Racing Form when she ran back].
TC was left in the gate by many lengths in her debut.
Anyone can access to see the replay for themselves. The Ragozin spotter at Monmouth noted this. Ray Charles could have seen it. But the Form/Equibase guy didn't, So Racing Form, Equibase and ThoroGraph users were not likely aware of it.

This kind of situation happens ALL THE TIME. So... after
a while... I feel obliged to say something about it.
I appreciate the subtle but important race-specific
extras Ragozin typically has. For example, the Rags will
include "vet scratch" information. [Hey, we're talkin'
Jersey-breds here]. When using the Monmouth Ragozins,
I sense someone legitimately was on the ball... and did some work... and noted bar shoes... and viewed the head-ons, etc. I don't have the same feeling when I use the ThoroGraphs.

Jerry, bring this up at the next board meeting. You can't catch everything, but the ThoroGraph spotter at Monmouth [and elsewhere too?] can do a much better job.
