So funny, Dogs.....I read the title of the article and just thought, miraculously, the trainer was arrested for practices that led to horses unable to breathe!  Then to read it was about domestic violence, wow.  Sounds like he is in some trouble, though doubt it will have any effect on him getting all those promising horses.

The trainer's court date was postponed.

Looks like the matter likely-be settled for the native Saratogian and resident. Before entering the gate.

The circumstances seem to say race called off with refunds.

If not broken don't fix it. HISA also bungled a $20K new owner claim.

Perhaps jocks will push back on Breeders Cup.

U.S. racing was seriously broken before I ever heard the acronym HISA. 

Yes, HISA is new.  YES they are trying to do something.  YES it will take a while to implement.  YES it will be rocky.   YES they will get some things wrong.   (like when we tried to {appropriately} give 60 million uninsured Americans health care insurance.)   Improving an unjust system, and changing an entrenched status quo, is not an easy task.  

Meanwhile, HISA ain't goin' away....so those who don't support fixing some aspects of our sport----
1.) put the horse first; 2.) put us closer to the way respected jurisdictions in the world conduct horse racing -----  lets just say I hope the apologists skeedaddle long before HISA does. 
 

And, this year, if any jockey uses their whip improperly in the Breeders Cup races, I hope they DO get a suspension + fine.     

Sometimes old dogs need to learn new tricks, and the smart ones, do, or they go the way of dinosaurs.  Jockeys can certainly add crop finesse to their skillset.   Like JV said when he got fined by the British Racing Authorities during Royal Ascot in 2019:  "The rules are different here, and the way they use the crop here is different," (indicating that where you contact a horse and how many times played a part in the sanctions.)

(
Of course, JV knew the Brit racing rules rather well, but at least he took his suspension w/out whining too much.....he can ride anywhere even after NY upheld the BRA suspension didn't starve to death or anything. I can appreciate that not every rider is in that privileged category, but I have faith they will adapt. )
