surveillance cameras, extra security, drones, what's going to change, cheaters will cheat, and the CHRB doesn't care about it. I admire what you try to do for horseracing, but everything in California falls into deaf ears.
why has it not been put to a vote before the TTC and the TOC maybe it's these interests that
don't want tight security in the field, maybe that's the answer you would get from members of the CHRB if they were presented with this question.
I believe commissioner Bimbo heads the safety and integrity committee ,may someone present the question to her.
The TOC doesn't give a darn about anything except making sure that the 20% who get the 80% of the purse money keep getting it. And it might not be what Bob Baffert (Who is like Lance Armstrong in my opinion) wants. That's the short answer.
it would be just something else that would leak down to the bettors.....no.....just need stiffer penalties for those violators...they've been let go too long....I guess the thinking is, that if we bust all the cheaters, who'd be left to run?????
Cameras aren't that expensive. Lets say you have 90 entries for a Saturday. All of those entered have a surveillance camera for 24 hours prior. Let's say that California hires 4 people to watch the video and when they watch they just fast forward until someone enters the stall. They see what the person is doing and if it's not suspicious they move on.
As far as money goes there are millions from breakage and uncacshed tickets. Four people at 60K per year and the cost of several hundred cameras? Well worth it.
The issue isn't about the money Andy, It's about a culture that permeates society, we have the death penalty ,but we still have murders. Those in charge to make security and integrity
a priority have to have a strong character and integrity.
why not just let the government put cameras in your house in your bedroom in your bathroom, make every child get a computer chip put in them so the goverrment knows everywhere they go
Yep, I'll bet Vegas will listen to you and take out their video surveillance if you make the same case.
it's about the integrity of the game. Horse Racing needs to update certain policies and procedures to give the public confidence.
