the biggest issue for me is Prat calling foul. he told the NBC interview post race that he was bounced SIDEWAYS.
if that doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth, I don't know what would.
I can't get past the fact we are talking about a rule is a rule and emphasizing rules so much but the whole industry is nothing but liars, cheats, and frauds.
it is disgusting.
I have cut back significantly in the amount I play because of all the unsavory b/s behind the scenes.
I am not well connected like some of the guys on here who know the scoop and the trainers and have "insider" knowledge of this sort of thing.
I used to love handicapping races and having the thrill of being "right" on a longshot if it comes in.
Now the times I do play I am more concerned about who is also in the race that might be cheating and run something unpredictable?
It's completely ruined the sport, at least for me.
Not saying what Prat did was cheating but it is still right up there with the shady dishonest garbage that plagues the sport and makes it harder and harder to enjoy.
