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.

15 jockeys suspended for false physical paperwork at mountaineer. They say it won’t affect the races but that’s a lot of jockeys to lose at one time!

I’m glad they settled. Hopefully he and the others have rightened the ship in regards to wages and hours for the hard working backstretch workers!

 Hearing for Baffert- they included the name of Vitali in this headline - I had no idea who he is and by the way the headline reads, I thought this Vitali person was in some way related to the Baffert issue, but he is not: he is a trainer who has nothing whatsoever to do with Baffert. The headline is confusing.

Yes it is confusing, they’re just the first two trainers to go thru this new procedure.
