Fairmount1, you are correct. But I will go one step farther and add that the sport of racing is already a deadman walking. It was once great. But resuscitation is no longer possible. I’ve participated in all aspects of the industry and that was one of the most enjoyable periods of my life. But that was long ago, and now I’m just a casual observer, mostly just watching the car wreck happen. It is no longer a great sport. I no longer participate because it is no longer attractive. The pervasive use of drugs, super-trainers at each track dominating the entry box for every race, and watching drastic odds changes after the start of the race were enough to drive me out of the game. For a while, I participated in all the debates and arm waving about what needed to be done to “save the sport”. That was my denial phase, and I’ve moved past it. This industry is no longer savable. There is a hypothetical horse racing industry that I would be attracted to again, but I am convinced now that there is simply no way to get there from here. And so I’ll watch the death throes with curiosity and wonder. How could such a good thing be totally destroyed from within. The power of mismanagement is truly awesome to behold.
