after government investigation that he didn't pay grooms, hotwalkers, etc. among other things.  What a shame backside workers are treated like this by an Eclipse Award winning trainer.   For shame!   A successful trainer doesn't even pay his help fairly. -- these poor people who work so  hard behind the scenes.....not getting paid for their hours worked.  He falsified records, timesheets, etc.  

What a CREEP.

Really, w/out some kind of federal regulation and centralized accountable body, with the graft corruption and drugs and horse abuse in U.S. racing, I don't see much future.   

I suspect what happened in Brown's operation is pretty widespread, too.  I support banning him.........for life.  Don't need low lifes like this in racing.

I thought not paying your employees/contractors/creditors was a virtue now, and shows good business acumen? (Sarcasm)

Sound a bit like Yoda there. Brown has apparently been seduced by the dark side.

Sometimes who we actually are, come through our fingers, out to the world. I’m sure “tough” is very much who you are!

I never understood how he became the golden boy, I always suspected him due to who he came up under. 

I heard some in the industry upset about immigration stuff, but it was obvious they were upset about not being able to get illegals in to work for cheaper.
