I donít know if thatís right or not. At least for me, a complete casual, heís THE reason the sport is synonymous with cheating in my mind. So, at least for someone like me, I donít know if a bad rep is better than no rep.

I am like you just a casual fan. I only watch the big televised races and he is the only trainer I know. The only other name I know is D. Wayne Lucas whom I believe is an owner but I am not even sure about that.

I did see American Pharaoh at Del Mar and that is the extent of my historical racing knowledge.

I will double your knowledge. Lucas was the first trainer to win the three Triple Crown races in a single year with two different horses.
I think he is the only one but not certain.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Here's an odd ending to a race. It's making the rounds because of the name of the eventual winner. But never mind the politics. Can you imagine having big money riding on Moro Flyboy?
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Wow, about how often is the jockey dislodged from his horse during a race on average? And how often is it from the lead horse? I could see this happening more often in the pack, both in saddle and on buggyÖ

That was a few weeks ago and the question asked is...the jockey hits the horse right handed once and it veers left...and then he does it a second time for some reason, not sure if or what he was thinking

Yep. This is the jockey's fault.
