Amen to that. Talked with longtime handicapper this morning about the image of Louisiana, the state where I am now living in. It's not good when you slap the hand of someone brazen enough to use a lethal drug. But why should we be surprised. Louisiana is the state where the maligned former executive director of the California Horse Racing Board was gainfully employed at the Fairgrounds last season. Roy C. "Do Nothing" Wood is about as bad as it gets. Believe me because I covered this guy when he was doing next to nothing in California. Louisiana? They also welcomed with open arms the biggest rule breaker in the history of horse racing--Pat "Break The Rules" Valenzuela. And yes, I think the last time I looked one of the major factions of the Louisiana horsemen's association was serving time in jail.
Hopefully I will be able to continue bringing something constructive to the table in the wonderful world of horse racing. I continue to research illegal drug use not only in horse racing but in sports in general. Like it or not, HGH and designer drug issues are still very much with us. As soon as I return from California I will continue to follow Fairgrounds meet in New Orleans. Last year marked my last effort at rating the coming three-year-olds. I'll leave that up to someone else.
Currently am free-lance writing. Also publish a "Horses To Watch" list which is the end result of all the hours of video tape review via the internet.
