Yup, they put millions of dollars into the game and turn their runners over to
astute horsemen like Navarro and Servis.

Silver, Tavasco and everyone else is entitled to their opinion, the same way
you can wave your pompoms and tell us how great a game Racing is, how the glass
is half full, blah blah blah. Over the last 40 years I have seen things
backside and frontside that might lead me to conclude that Three Card Monty is
a more noble pursuit than the Sport of Kings. I love the Sport but harbor no illusions.

Tavasco says that a 9 furlong one turn Belmont which has been turned into a
Derby prep which will likely feature Baffert v Barclay doesn't excite him. The
man apparently pays his dues each night, betting on Asia Pacific tracks while
most of us are answering to our water pills.

Yeah, I'm shedding a tear for you buddies with millions of dollars worth of
idle horseflesh and the training bills piling up; if I focus on their
predicament maybe I can take my mind off of the millions of unemployed, the
hundreds of thousands dead and the shuttered businesses that may never reopen,
not to mention the fact that Eddie Haskell is dead.
