    trainers will cheat any way they can to make money to make money , they need jail time not a slap on the wrist

  • BlowUpTheTote
    8 hours 46 minutes ago

    I'm responding to a particular stable blogger "David Juffet" who has a propensity to call-out "select Trainers" with subsequent suspensions / violations. However, I'm highly suspecting he hasn't any knowledge of the ongoings behind the scenes of the "black & white media publications" that he apparently utilizes as his Holy Bible. I'm here to offer a bit of insight that ISN'T always apparent within

    BlowUpTheTote I'd like to begin by ask'n all those who so adamantly scrutinize T-Bred Race Horse Trainers,..do any of Ya actually possess any Backside / Shedrow, Race Track experience,.."Mr. Juffet???" I'll also ask how many of Ya are presently taking pharmaceutical prescriptions,..Ya know, the same Crap that the "FDA" claims is okay, and then is jammed down your throat as the cure all (so to speak) to every ailment imaginable, and all via your daily television networks,..then the ambulance chasing lawyers come out of the woodwork to proclaim,.."if you took said Crap and purple horns grew from your nostrils, then we're here to represent Ya",..get the picture, then please keep that in mind, cause many are ingesting FAR HIGHER DOSES of DANGEROUS Crap then what I'm about to reveal. Oh, and least us not forget the Opioid Epidemic,..No???
    Allow me to mention that Pilots of Jet Airliners are tested at 2-Billion times the level of what T-Bred Race Horses are tested,..that's correct! Does anyone know the amount of a "nanogram" (Mr. Juffet). A nanogram is the equivalent of "one billionth of a gram",..that's the testing procedure for T-Bred Race Horses.
    Now, I'd like to share with Ya a particular violation that "S.Lake" was found guilty, since that's the accusation of said "David Juffet.",..and he is correct, but do ask yourself following what I'm about to share,..is it always fair to "label" without sufficient knowledge???
    In 2015, "S. Lake" served 120 days for horses found to be in violation for "Stanozolol", an anabolic steroid that improves muscle growth, red blood cell production, increases bone density and stimulates the appetite of debilitated or weakened animals. (commonly administered following a grueling race - a knocked-out horse,..capiche!) This particular medication was permitted in the State of MD up to a threshold level until Oct. 2014. At that time, the State then modified it's regulation to come into alignment with Racing Medication and Testing Consortium Guidelines that prohibit any trace of the drug in horses on race day. That rule change is thought by many to have contributed to the spate of "seven" Stanozolol Positives that occurred in about a six-week period in Dec. / Jan. 2014 - 2015. As for the MD State Stewards Ruling,.."S.Lake", even though found to be guilty, the Stewards agreed with "Lake's" contention that "Lake's" Veterinarian had INADVERTENTLY administered Stanozolol to the horse "No More Strippers" rather than to the horse for which "Lake" sought the medication, which was just returning to training,..he was still penalized! I ask,..to those (Mr. Juffet) who Luv to call-out Trainers as JUICERS without any real knowledge,..is this truly JUSTICE??? ...and YOU NEVER got caught in a "Speed Trap", or innocently violated ANYTHING in Your Sanctimonious Life,..correct???
    Again, I ask the common "horseplayer", do many of Ya know what "Clenbuterol or Flunixin is, or the difference between many common medications and those which end in "caine",..well do Ya??? I do, and it may surprise Ya that I'm directly involved with two Racing Stables that are rather modestly successful!
    I'd like to end with a few little known, mostly forgotten TRUTHS that didn't make the same publicity, or were simply brushed aside rather quickly, and I share this without directly pointing fingers,..Why, because I understand what T-Bred Race Horse Trainers are confronted with on a daily basis. I'm quite certain that the vast majority will recognize these common Trainer names,..
    1) "Bob Baffert": 7 horses dying of Heart Failure in a less than an 18 mth. span of time.
    2) ...both "Steve Asmussen and Tom Amoss" have drug violations (potentially banishment from the State of Texas for Asmussen) pending for years on end,..both are represented by one time State Attorney General / Private Attorney / recognized, highly successful T-Bred Horse Owner, "Maggi Moss",..they have extraordinarily deep pockets to keep there cases alive until the statute of limitations EXPIRE!!!
    3) "Bill Mott", most recently served a depleted "one week" suspension for a "Flunixin" (pain killer) violation from 2014,..he had spent in excess of $100K of his own change fighting the case, and finally decided,..enough is enough!
    ...so finally, to all the "David Juffet's" out there,..please do get a CLUE before Accusing those regarding something You're Totally in the Dark about,..otherwise, Ya Hit a Nerve with those that really DON'T APPRECIATE it,..capiche???
    Oh,...just for the record, "S. Lake" is "sixth all time in WINS" among Trainers Worldwide,..not bad for a local, community Buddy of mine who amazingly grew a T-Bred Horse Racing Empire from scratch!

    starts: 27,642
    WINS: 5,926
    2nd's: 4,784
    3rd's: 3,906

    Earnings: $114,271,087

    Final thought: People really shouldn't criticise to harshly something they NEVER attempted to try on their own!

    123 follow YOUR RULES. There's only one way to make this right.

    netsfan3 Actually, from 2011-2017 I was listed as an import from the Meadowlands. I was never on Monmouth Park's seniority list. The union considered me a retiree from the Big M, on a pension. As a sort of independent contractor, I was not eligible to participate in the track's 401 k plan. Since my position of playing for fun and to help others was well known there was no conflict of interest. I actually find it amusing that your small group of friends gets warned for being abusive to other contestants. The proper response to "please refrain from vulgar or offensive comments" is O.K. Perhaps., your buddies are unaware that calling a PUBLIC official a ninny is not the same as calling other contest contestants "shits" or worse.

    I was to stunned by that summit meeting today to even watch a horse race. I had to go outside in the 93 degree heat to sweat out my anger. They're dancing in the street in Russia. Putin even had the balls to say he wanted the outcome of our election to be a Trump victory. WHAT A SHAMEFUL PERFORMANCE by our President.

    meanmistermustard Lola never looks bad.

    I don't understand the controversy. It's clearly stated that this could happen along with the resulting consequence. Period. The complaint should be change the rule. That should be the only complaint. When registration was open did anybody not sign up because of the stated rule or consequence? Did anybody post their dissatisfaction or question that rule? You signed up, that's it.

    meanmistermustard It sucks for everybody involved in "THE DECISION". You change things going forward.

    I would love to see some of the stable people appear as contestants on Jeopardy. Alex Tribeck would be startled when they tell him, "Mind your own business" when he asks them such as what they do for a living? It is called normal, every day chat.

    netsfan3 I enjoy telling stories on what I consider to be interesting happenings or people I have met. It might involve one of the other members of the stable, but I am not sure. I was leaving Monmouth Park to catch the train heading back to Newark, NJ about 7 years ago. It was a day where they had a handicap contest. I struck up a conversation with a guy who participated in the contest. When I mentioned Ron Ripey who was the Star-Ledger's handicapper the guy went ballistic. He called Ripey a midget, and a braggart. He claimed he was a much better handicapper than Ripey. And that Ripey had finished second to him in a contest, while only mentioning his name in one sentence in the article. IF THIS WAS A MEMBER OF THE STABLE I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW. MY MEMORY IS PRETTY GOOD, AND I SEEM TO RECALL ONLY THE GUYS FIRST NAME.

    Definitely got my picks in last nite and shows up today saying I didn’t. Bunch of bs. I need an investigation.

    BlowUpTheTote Question,..how can you have "posted your picks" as you've claimed, when there's NOT been a "contest format including PP's" posted on the website as yet???

    Will be up at Wildwood Crest this week without my pc. Can I claim personal hardship in case I don't get my piks in? In all "fairness" I'm going to be out of my comfort zone and might have to adjust and make piks early. 123 you're missing the boat. Take the site down for 15 min. and observe the carnage! How many will lose their shit? It'll be fun to watch the snoflakes melt down. Take a little heat

    BlowUpTheTote J.C.,..give it up already! Quit throw'n S _ _ T at the fan!!!

    Was stationed at a Nike site in Atlantic Highlands in 1970 at the 52nd artillery brig looking for some feedback

    BlowUpTheTote ...makes me ponder the recent "Service Record" that I recently perused regarding my own Dad's basic training at "Keesler Field" (A.F.B.) in Mississippi, and strangely enough, unbeknownst to my family, he took flight for "Ole Miss" from a rather smallish airport in "New Cumberland, PA",..the very town he and my family would unknowingly move to some 21 yr.'s later. Furthermore, his basic (A.M.) training began on my actual "Birth Date" back in 1945, some 15 yr.'s before I was even though of. ...I thought just a bit "deja vu" when acknowledging all this following his passing this past May. // Anyway, I "Totally Ditto" "Mr. Mustard's" sentiments written above, and just a little more personally to You "stitch",..Thanx for again conjuring of some kind-a curious thoughts of years in me Pop's past!

    51 players did not enter today. I played 4-2-3.

    netsfan3 I was simply factually reporting. I know you have a problem distinguishing between facts and opinions. I'm surprised you have not commented on the mysterious handicapper I told Mustard about 7 or 8 years ago at Monmouth Park. The guy who called Ron Ripey a midget, and a poor handicapper. A long time ago. But, I'm pretty sure I remember his first name. The guy told me he was going to Newark, to switch for a train to Delaware. Did you ever beat Ron Ripey in a contest? Just curious.

    Hey ITCHYONE. Are you one of MUSTARDS lazy people? I always told where I worked and what I did. Calling large swaths of the population as lazy bums looking for a handout, I kind of think reflects a political opinion. Mustard thinks people should obey the rules. It's quite the topic of the day, as to whether that includes the President? WHAT'S YOUR OPINION?

    netsfan3 So, do you chaps use American made Pepsodent or Aim toothpaste, or do you buy Crest or Colgate (imported)? Do you drive an American made car or drive an import. Many Americans talk a good game about buying American. But, of course they are much to busy to look at a label. I find Mr. Itchy's idea that ALL politicians care only care about themselves to be somewhat true. But, Donald Trump has made it an art form. Are you aware that because of Trump's tariffs on China they will now be buying billions of dollars worth of soybeans from Russia instead of the Midwest? And that our trade deficit with China ballooned in June? Yes, the coming mid term elections will be important. Whether the Republicans can hold onto the House with an anti Nancy Pelosi, pro Russian ad campaign will be interesting?

    Of the 54 races so far this contest how many have come off the turf? Too many. Let's have a contest with just off the turf and races on off tracks. Obviously sometimes it can't be helped. But a better job can be done forecasting the conditions on race day.

    netsfan3 Jersey is notorious for taking races off the turf. They are then very easy to handicap. Only, they pay next to nothing. With all these favorites it has been hard to make up ground in the contest. Hopefully soon they will put 3 races with more than 6 horses, and no Navarro 1/5 shots.

    I see Scott Lake is shipping #2 EMOTICON all the way to Jersey to run in an $8,000 claimer in the 5th race. I think he fits well in this race at 5/2. Won't play the race if he gets bet down to less than even money.

    BlowUpTheTote Alright, I'm quite certain that at very least "Net's" has been awaiting my opinion on the aforementioned issue (S. Lake), and I've elected to take more than simply a moment's time to regard to it (please do look for my commentary within Wed's early morning stables blog),..for the record, it needs to be set straight!
    As for your assertion questioning whether "we / the wagering public" need investigate trainers, I say,..at very least do some follow-up homework upon any media type "Horse Manure" thrown upon the public by the many scribes (including Andy Beyer among others) who only skepticize, and then scrutinize from their side of the desk / publication without any reasonable knowledge of the interactions under the roof of a shedrow on any given day, at any given race track,..their picayune minds are consumed only with the viable print of the DRF,..they Haven't a CLUE, like many others such as "David Juffet" above who incessantly calls out Trainers for infractions that he has no more knowledge of other than what he believes he knows,..which is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!
    I ask those who are reviewing this to please read what I'm about to offer in this blog come early Wed. morning. // Thanx!

    I would like day 13 thru 18 to be abandoned. The mean machine was not working on all cylinders due to my partners defection, I overslept one day, didn't have my glasses another. With our limited handicapping abilities those obstacles were too much to overcome. I think a "fair" compensation would be $30 and another lifeline.

    netsfan3 Let's not mince semantics. O.K. Who specifically are the ENTITLED PEOPLE you are mentioning? Most everyone I am around is either
    gainfully employed, retired, going to college, or is disabled. In my town there are many people who I classify as constant complainers, on Facebook. But, I wouldn't say they think they are entitled to special benefits.

    The second race (off the turf) looks interesting. #1 ONE TOUGH ANGEL could beat CHANNEL SURFING in what looks like a 2 horse race.
