Trogdon: On The Meadowlands Stakes Stabling Rule

July 4, 2017:


I thought it might be easier to just send this out in advance about the Meadowlands Pace entry box. Fear The Dragon was really in good form Saturday at the Hempt and we were tempted to change plans and go and supplement to the Meadowlands Pace.

Faraldo: RMTC Task Force to Study Glaucine

June 24, 2016:


The New York State Gaming Commission has received at least 35 written reports from its own highly regarded testing laboratory regarding positive tests for Glaucine at New York State tracks. Other jurisdictions have reported similar positives. Not only hasn't the Gaming Commission taken any action to call for the return of purse money, much less done anything as required by its regulations; now the Commission has apparently decided that there is some reason to have RMTC conduct "research" on Glaucine. The drug is manufactured, and generally available, outside the United States. This has been done despite the Gaming Commission's research lab coming to its own conclusions; something in the past always deemed more than satisfactory.

Tripp: Helping achieve a positive outcome

February 9, 2016:


One month...four weeks...31 days since the lives of many changed and took a turn for the worse. No one knew what to expect, many did not know where they would go or what they would do. As the days went on and time progressed, the support seen from everyone was inspiring.

Gallucci: January 4, 2016, 11 p.m.

January 7, 2016:


When I saw the smoke pouring out of very crack from the West end of Barn 1 at Classy Lane, I knew something horrific was occurring right before my very eyes. As I rushed to open the doors, thick black smoke filled the barn. I can’t even begin to describe the cries from the horses; having nothing you can do to save them, feeling so helpless, knowing their lives were over.

Reid: There is No Future Without Transparency

August 7, 2015:


From a Concerned Bettor, Horse Owner and Racing Enthusiast

The day started off so promising. I might live in Richmond, VA but my attention was glued to one of my favorite days in all of horse racing - Industry Day at Grand River Raceway. It made me feel ever more homesick than usual to think that I would miss the 25th anniversary of a day of racing I cherish seeing live.

To all our fellow Horsemen, Horsewomen, Friends and Business Associates;

On June 1, 2014, we experienced the worst type of tragedy anyone can experience in a lifetime. We lost seventeen horses by smoke and fire. There are not words to describe the pain and heartache we feel.

There have been better drivers and trainers in harness racing and surely there have been those who were more successful for longer stretches.
