Good to see one of the good guys in racing take a break from all the stress. Peter was one of Witham's star pupils.
Murray Rojas had his conviction thrown out by the US Supreme Court for horse doping. Talk about a 3000-1 shot coming through. Quietly moved through the news but worth checking out if curious about HISA and its potential problems legally.
CHRB didn't even mention the vet who scratched Modern Games. Actually nothing about it. But they did fine a few trainers and/or their sons for their tempers I understand.
CDI argued how much they have done for racing in Illinois as justification for being awarded the OTB rights in 2022.
And NY has a bill that could knock out slot machine money being awarded to horse racing. NYRA's star of the show noted that Saratoga brings 240 million to the region not understanding that such an argument puts it squarely on NYRA to explain why they can't make it on their own.
As I've mentioned before, about 5 years ago the backyard folks told me that racing could be dead in 20 years. I didn't believe them and still don't in Kentucky. But beyond that, I'm beginning to wonder more and more.
Spoke to Uncle Bill earlier this week, and he says he will have a spot saved for me in the backyard in 2022. I'll bring the Bud Light for everyone. That assumes NYRA will have picnic tables available that don't cost $200 per person per race if their purse subsidies get knocked out.
