Well name of the game and if you don’t really know what’s done at the barn, is partly their fault? I do feel bad for the backstretch workers though.:(

Yes I wish owners were a little bit more hands on and questioned the trainers about vet bills etc more.

But you know, some big business people(owners) aren’t always on the up and up in business dealings....

Well, they cheated.  They should probably lose the championship.

I think Maximum Security just might one day be remembered and maybe hold a special place in people's hearts for his role in cleaning up the sport.  Not that he had a choice in any of this but the horse was a victim and the perpetrators got caught.  Max is just lucky he wasn't injured or worse.  I hope he remains healthy.

That will be a sweet reward for the honest trainers who knew they had lost to cheaters but couldn't do anything.

this is TVG’s benign statement on the matter

"This is Going to Get Ugly"

Day two of the big racing news is upon us, and we have some reporting from the DRF's Matt Hegarty to consume. I thought it was a really good piece that I encourage you to read, if you're interested.

Matt interviewed an unnamed racing insider, who said:

"This is going to get ugly, it really will"

This is in reference to the inference that the investigation is ongoing, and plea bargain agreements are yet to come. In other words, according to this insider, there are probably a whole lot of people not sleeping very well.

No precedent to strip his championship so it will be interesting following this to see what Eclipse Awards does.
