Not too long ago, Chad Brown got in trouble for not properly paying workers, now Asmussen is being sued for a similar thing. What's with these Hall of Fame millionaire trainers underpaying "the help"?

I always like reading the blotter at the track.  A lot of these non-paid employees often are getting in trouble for drugs and other minor track rules.   There is always a fine assigned and the details are plastered on a track bulletin board.

I'm wondering if most aren't like this. Owners are about winning, so they will look the other way. Greed overlooks many indiscretions.

Unindicted Donald dabbled in horse racing back in the day, Probably had Kutchner for his trainer

and his vet was a dentist looking for Bone spurs. He had the Candlestick maker running his operation for him and he didn't pay his bills either.

Makes me wonder how many rich owners are just like him.

Are you kidding?  He's the one to apparently *emulate* in today's world.    

Not all owners are bad.  Thank goodness owner of Songbird insisted she be looked at by Bramlage, or she'd probably have broken down on the track next out.

Here is a funny one I saw at Woodbine:

I guess that exercise rider wanted to "retire" spectacularly :-)
