Chat about horses, racing, and the industry.
CrazyKid thinks the game should be run like it was at Caliente in the 1920's. Who cares about doping, regulation, cheating, integrity. And most of all who cares about drugging a horse? They're just livestock. What else can you chalk up the completely asinine equation of video camera surveillance of race horses that impact hundreds of thousands of dollars in bets and purses with watching the bedrooms of common citizens (that impact nothing) to?
This kind of "logic" and shrill defensiveness by old-timers that think they've earned the right to be idiots is why the game is where it is.

Instead of cameras on the stalls I would rather have a hidden microphone in any of the Drivers rooms at The Meadowands, Balmoral or Yonkers. Much better stuff goes on there.
The Dodgers Suck. No Championships in 25 Years. HAHA
At least several harney drivers have gone to prison and I'm talking hard time for several years.
Wake me when that happens to any T-Bred criminals.
i just think that if i buy a horse then NOBODY NO MATTER WHO IT IS has any right to put some fukin camera in the stall with the horse i bought
They don't own the stalls. By the way several Trainers support the move. It will be on the agenda for the medication meeting on the 18th.
Let's hope that they implement a system not just to make them feel good ,but a system that's actually comparable to the one they have implemented in New York.
Where security officers paing with their ipads at any moment can bring up any
detail on any horse on the grounds by way of central data base, Horse tattoo number they got it, picture of what the horse looks like, they got it, who is associated with anything to do with the horse, owner,trainer, helper, groom, foreman ,they got it!
These guys patrol with service weapons like any cop and they are trained in what to look for, who is allowed where and when, and the horsemen know who they are and what they're there for, so there is no accidental anything because all the players involved are educated about how things work. CHRB better take a good hard long look at the way NYRA is and has taken measures regarding security and public perception
involving the integrity of racing in NEW YORK. CHRB can take a lesson from NYRA
as far as broadcsting their meetings with video as well as audio.
If they let Alan Balch of the CTT work it out he will come up with something reasonable and fair. As with anything else you make adjustments as time goes by.
Integrity doesn't give a love about reasonable and fair! If they(CHRB) is going to take measures then odds are someone's not going to like the changes and is going to cry
not fair.The system implemented has to prioritize integrity first if they do that
it will be just and fair. For this reason I think security firms should be contracted to come up with plans to protect the integrity and put to bid on. Not the trainers or the owners.
Just my opinion, but having cameras in the stalls would not have prevented Jose Santos from using a buzzer in the Preakness or Luis Saez from using a buzzer in the recent Travers.
More than just cameras in stalls needs to be done.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

cameras wont solve anything. all they have to do is take the horse out of the stall and give it whatever they want to give it.
absolutely ignorant and somehow they will make the owners pay for it which means less owners less horses per race etc..
