pedroza makes first contact and efrain goes to left hand to respond and makes contact ...and I guess its OK for pedroza to intimitae the other horse and get put up ...BULL CRAP....pedroza felt he had he had to make contact to maybe affect the outcome and gets rewarded and they wonder why racing and its officials are always under fire....
Was too embarrassed to start this topic since I should not be watching this garbage...But I have to agree 1000%. That call was absolute BS. Pedroza came in hard while the inside horse was running straight, after the inside horse got knocked off balance he came out. Cant believe how a call like this can be made.
total BS.... anyone who has knowledge of racing knows that the 1 was the one who did the most contact but since its the fair and perdroza vs hernandez not really suprised at all. I used to enjoy Fairplex but it has become a total joke over the past few years and judging by this weekend's light entries so have some of the trainers/owners.
my pain is a $double to the 3 and a five dollar double to the next winner not to mention OUT OF THE PICK 4 ...and as of now would have still been alive 3 by 3,that is why this BS ...not just the money in the race it is the horizontal bets that get crushed ...almost out 500 in the 7th the double was paying 278 x 2 1/2 to next race winner 705...and on and on....you are right pedroza vs ...anybody...very sad
Pretty clear that once again the stewards have made a terrible call. Forget that Pedroza initiated the bumping. Forget that Pedroza was crowding the other horse. Let's use that famous standard of whether Pedroza was going by the other horse..............NO WAY!! Pedroza was never ahead and was never going to be ahead. Just terrible. I'm a big Pedroza fan, and a big Mullins fan, but this is racing at its lowest. No talent + no supervision = bad calls. Its been going on too long for the CHRB not to do anything.
I would love to hear what the Racing Form or Handicappers Report have to say about this.
Here's what the Form and HR will say about it:
"Hey would you like to buy our product for tomorrow's card, huh huh? Great formulator stats, trip notes, strategy plays" etc. etc. The bullsheet never ends and (of course) that's why the game is in the sewer it's in. It's rigged, fixed, fundamentally dishonest. And then they wonder why it's not on SportsCenter.
We keep talking about it,we for the most part all agree then why can't we get it changed....fundamentally the game is flawed but no matter what we say or do has absolutely no affect,most major media companies won't touch it with a ten foot pole and if you believe LUCK was canceled because of horse cruelty think again,they were starting to go real deep into the under belly of racing,Escolanty was just the beginning....and just like that gone...just like all our pleas for a change in how it is run,,,,,to them they are invisible,silent pleas
