I agree with this!  No delays.

I hope they can convince the Legislators to reconsider these measures in the Bill. Trainers will not be able to pay 150% above state minimum wage and honestly some of this sounds like the workers would be part of a union.

Congrats to Steve Asmussen on tying for the most wins by a trainer, with a win at Ellis Park just now! No more horses running today, so tomorrow might be the day!

Isn't this the trainer who lost two horses in a barn fire awhile back?  Does banamine mask pain in injured horses?  I just know of it when it is used for so many things involved with horses, like  first symptom of colic, etc.  If it endangers a horse and jockey during race, then this is serious.  Would be so disappointed to hear this.

Yes, I believe it is a pain reliever, and maybe why he’s leading trainer??? Masking pain to run a horse is very unsafe for both horse and rider.

I don’t remember if he had horses in a barn fire.

Wayne Potts lost two horses in a barn fire at Belmont in April of this year.  Thanks to numerous people who helped rescue others, 58 horses in the shared barn were  "safely evacuated."  He lost stakes winner  American Sailor, a 9 yr. old who had won Saratoga's Troy Stakes (G-3) via a DQ and an un-raced 3 yr. old.
