"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.

Excellent article and I couldn’t agree more. I do wonder who else will be arrested in the coming weeks. I wonder if David Jacobson saw this coming last year when he up and quit training.

One of the horse vets charged is 35 miles from Indiana Grand.   Interesting.   Perhaps the investigative company and FBI need to look at trainers who were winning at a high percentage there...https://www.wishtv.com/news/i-team-8/carmel-veterinarian-named-in-large-horse-racing-indictment/
