Headlines for April 7th

Prince of Wales appeal verdict due soon I saw the race many times, and Malakoff was definitely guilty of interference.

Thistledown season to begin shortly, still no slots and this means crappy purses.

Owner of claimed horse sues previous owner and his trainer, Mandella over nerve removal operation Another improvement that could be made to horse racing is that all procedures that cost more than $200 should be reported by the vet and the trainer separately (to keep them both honest), and then it should be reported on the horse's form for the public to see. It is good for the bettor, and good for the potential claiming owner.
Horse racing needs way more transparency. Anytime a professional athlete sprains a pinky, the info is available to the public.

Two NY horsemen plead guilty in international drug ring

Nova Scotia needs a racino for horse racing to survive in the province

Yesterday at Woodbine, the rail wasn't so hot, but it wasn't horrible either. The first four winners had two 5 furlong workouts.
Woodbine picks for today:
In the 2nd, Holy Wings should fly home. The "Babe" has a hot mount in the fourth, Jade's A Pleasure. Winter raced Rice Pudding could be very tough in the 5th. And in the 6th, Bold Thing has a winter raced edge as well.
