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.

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.

Here is a funny one I saw at Woodbine:

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

They should start a supermarket rag for "people in horse racing".   

It appears bin Rashid al-Maktoum's wife has left him and fled to Germany for asylum.

Family relationships are messy.    The princess is from Jordan, so there were/are political ramifications, and it just sounds like a typical family mess to me.   Unlike the thousands of U.S. women in domestic abuse shelters all across America, housing women who really "couldn't" escape (no money, no resources, multiple children), or the thousands of young runaways (also indigent)  who don't get along with their parents who are littering the streets in big cities here (unlike the daughter)----- the princess has gobs of milliions of $$, can live and go anywhere in the world that she wishes....... and I suspect this wife thing will just all end quietly in a civil settlement like most divorces do here.  

Was just saying that lately, with the DQ in the Derby, with trainers being kicked out of barns, with trainers being found in violation of federal labor laws, a U.S. track where horses seem to be dying/injured at an alarming rate.........and now racing families in domestic turmoil, racing really SHOULD have a supermarket tabloid.  :)   Sad but true.

The princess has many millions but I am sure Sheikh Mo could make life difficult for her if he chooses.I think she will be laying low in Germany for the foreseeable future.
