I love how the powers to be have their dirty little fingers in everything.Racing secretaries who can't make the monthly vig.Trainers being suspended for life.Crooked jockeys with ties with bookmakers over the pond.Trainers being suspended for 20 years. Stewards can be owners. Announcers can be agents,stewards,owners all of the above.Non DQ's on a weekly basis. I know a board member at Hawthorne who hires and fires trainers on a monthly basis. Harness drivers who go in partners on P5 and Hi-5 tickets. This is getting to be fun to watch.Next time you see a inquiry/bogus call at Chucky Town just try to figure out who is holding what ticket.
"We found that the chief steward was working, building a barn, for a horseman," Amores said. "That was a violation of the conflict of interest policy the commission has, so we suspended him."

"I just thought I was helping a family friend in a bad spot," said McKee at the Jan. 17 hearing, noting that Wehrman needed the money to pay rent. "I don't think I got any special consideration on stalls or starts because of the loan."
An ex Steward unable to pay his rent!!! And someone on this forum says that Stewards are not supposed to bet. LMAO!!!!
Exactly. Claimboxx reported on his trip notes that trainer Gary Stute flipped the bird at the Stewards and followed them to
their cars cursing them out.
In those same trip Notes, I also said I blamed Bisono for needlessly going to the left handed whip causing his horse to get out and cause interference. I do not think the Stewards made a good or a bad call in this case, I thought it was very difficult.
That may be the case but cameras or no cameras doesn't stop the constant 3 card Monty and the bamboozling of the bettor.
