Of interest, the Baffert horse that was transferred to Brisset, Blackadder, already got sold at KEEN auction.  250K, Claiborne Farm.

KHRC Hearing coming up on June 28.  From the sound of it, Beta Bob should have considered a more competent, less biased scientist, as well as his goofy lawyers.  His methods seem to be designed to exculpate Roberto rather than to find the facts and the truth.

Beta Bob suspended for 1 year by NYRA.   Will be allowed back January 2023, given credit for time served.

If the CDI ban holds he won't get to play Triple Crown until 2024.  Beta lives and breathes for that stuff, as you know.

You got a 50% chance of being 100% correct.    Let me look into the crystal ball.

Steve- I'm feeling lucky. Not for a good reason. Racing wants the golden boy back in the game.

What are they doing about Jockeys crawling along on turf and merry go round races?

Running turf sprints like routes then sprint last 3/16.

Good question.  If we had real stewards and real rules and regulations, the BS rides would slowly but surely shrink in number.
