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.

So NYRA reduced Baffert's ban to 1 year.    

I think they need to add a zero to the end of that.

The fact that Jamie Ness is still in the sport after 108 separate rulings against is the perfect example of why US racing is a cruel sport.  

He should be out for life.  Period.  The greatest of the great trainers like Wittingham and The Chief, Allen Jerkens would be over the moon for a 20% win rate.  And here's Ness clipping along at 31%??  It's nauseating and very frustrating that he still gets to play at all.  6 months?  No.

As much as I dislike Beta Bob, Ness makes him look like an angel.
