Brett Robinson Suspended For 10 Years: EPO Positive

Ontario Horse Improvement Program to be restructured for 2008 I wonder if we are going to see Ontario bred or sired claiming races in thoroughbred races. As I've mentioned before, I think it will do wonders to make Ontario breds worth a lot more money.

EPO positive for Brett Robinson. The harness horseman is now suspended for 10 years.

Layne Giliforte taking a shot at Presque Isle Downs with Sugarcoat on opening day.

Melissa Polkey has a very good week at Thistledown with 4 wins.

Lou Raffetto from Laurel being deliberately dishonest or just plain stupid about the low track takeout experiment.
WEG boycott it. Youbet and IRG also didn't allow bets on it this year as opposed to last. Also, there was no mention of the overall handle at the track on other tracks. Bettors got more money back, and my educated guess is that most of it went back into the windows...maybe not Laurel but other simulcast events.
One thing I do know, rebate shops will get 90% of my action from here on in.

Biancone to get a 15 day vacation for drugging a horse

Woodbine launched free online game Wednesday night. 360 people played. I'm sure it will grow from here. Very little info is available for newbies to figure out who to pick. Prize money is good considering it doesn't cost a dime to play it. I know the guy who finished second;)

Bettor's Buycott Update: This week, the focus will be Yavapai in Arizona on Tuesday.
