Putting aside Mr. DeMaria's misspelling of my non-trademarked nickname on this sit,I will endeavor to respond in no particular order; 1. Let's forget about fantasies of class actions or any other litigation involving bettors. Every state has rules that limit the exposure in such a case to the purse (and trophy), otherwise there would be a class action on behalf of losing bettors involving every administrative or judicial reversal of a disqualification.The betting result is FINAL! 2.With respect to the suspension, only a cynic-meaning everyone on this board or anyone who has ever lost a bet- would believe the stewards consulted with counsel in reaching the decision to suspend Saez.Two of the Stewards- Borden and Becraft are appointed by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission,which Governmental agency likely has an inside general counsel to consult with. The third steward, Tyler Picklerman (you cannot make this stuff up)works for host track (Churchill Downs),a large publicly traded company with a brand to protect. It should not be a surprise to anyone if counsel were consulted. But I posit the alternate argument.If these stewards disqualified a winner for first time in history--sort of a big deal- how can they not suspend Saez?? Any other outcome would be moronic. Moreover, why should the punishment be different than if this were a maiden claimer or any other stakes race? BUT WAIT-this is the most important part of this email--since this madness has got to stop- I have Saratoga tix in section B row D seats 15-18. I will be up 6 or so different days(and Thursday-Saturday Jim Dandy weekend )-if you produce proof of a losing ticket on MS and demonstrate that you have stopped posting on this subject from today forward either a drink or hot dog and beer is on me.
