That would be Keyn. I sent him a PM last spring asking for an explanation. He never opened the PM and has not been back since.

I usually stay away from these threads about horsemen' s races because they make me mad, but here we go:
There are horsemen' s races but they aren't anything like what you all think they are. Horsemen' s races are the ones in the book or written as extras that don't make sense. They are written and usually make it on the card because a trainer asked the racing Secretary to write a race for a specific horse. For example, Baffy has a filly he wants to run but she doesn't belong in any logically written allowance but he doesn't want to run her for a tag. He calls up the racing Secretary & tells him what he's got. Not just any trainer can do this and it doesn't happen very often because these races can be very hard to fill. This is because they are written for a specific horse. They are usually allowance or optional claiming races with weird conditions going long.
They are not as prevalent as you guys think and they are not placed in any particular order in the card. Sorry, no conspiracy.
Oh CK... Don't you know by now that he'll find a way?????? HE ALWAYS DOES!
And Trackmomma, I commend you for adding reason to this thread but sadly it won't work on those who live by the "horsemen race" creed.

Just because you heard them talking about it, doesn't mean they actually bet. I don't know how many times I have touted a horse to anyone who would listen and never bet a dime on them. Every time my horses would win someone would come up to me and ask how much I made at the windows. l have placed exactly 4 bets in all the years I worked on the track. That doesn't mean I wasn't confident of their chances, I just had more important things to spend my money on. I'm sure anyone eavesdropping on me race day would think I was betting my paycheck, but I wasn't.
I like a sports book that is nice and one can concentrate on what he is doing, not all sports books are like that as you know, There is nothing wrong with the one I am going to, they treat you very well and give you a warm welcome to have you on board.
Now what more do you want ?
Gee, I (carelessly) said I would drop by and say Hi if you were in town. It's not a date or anything. Are you here this saturday or superbowl saturday?
Kermit be careful. You may get roofied. You could wake up at Circus Circus wearing a wig and lipstick nekked for the waist down singing the theme song from Deliverance.

One for the El Cortez and Zero for me.
