Vet/Jock must have seen/felt something was amiss- I'm going to keep more of an eye out on these runners, thanks for the heads up.


I also saw this and am hoping that the vets are taking a closer look at theses horses - especially those that are running back in a short period of time...

Doesn't tell the Jacobsen story accurately as you know. He sends the "walking dead" to the hinterlands to die if they make it around the track in their last race for him....

Jacobsen's wining rate was 25% before monitors and cameras were in his barn last spring for 30 days....and 4% after. That is FACT. Jacobsen and NYRA made a deal...Jacobsen would fill those claiming races at NYRA and (win them all) and nyra stayed out of his way after they found " no wrongdoing after the 30day surveilance of Jacobsen's barn(s). Those new nyra execs are so far removed from the actual racing event ...they are likely incompetent in this area.

The reputable ny trainers( an oxymoron?) go to FL in the winter and form "committees" to study how to retrain race horses.
They must "suspect" Jacobsen is running those poor horses on more than 'hay,oats and water. Jacobsen routinely races his stock back on 3/4/5 days between races, drops them to win and so on till they literally drop dead.

I handicap(ed) and (used to) bet nyra almost daily for the past 15 years. I have been "watching" DAS since Jacobsen got back from his 25 year ban...so this expose on the Toque tale is par for Jacobsen. My pals at my local OTB know "I NEVER bet a Jacobsen horse...that is why I'll never be a "successful" handicapper...

NYRA looked the other way when Paragallo's horses were found on slaughter trucks and auctions. Looked the other way when Paragallo's farm was seized by authorities . Only banned Paragallo was he was indicted by a Columbia County grand jury. Looks like Jacobson is fire-proof at NYRA. Must have "pictures" of someone.


8596wool - A group of friends and I have been following this on Facebook in a private group that we have for racing. As I'm the only one on TBC I was hoping that I could copy this post, with your permission, to our group?

Keep an eye on El Oh El...the Jacobson-trained colt just won the 3rd at Aqueduct, a 1 mile $20,000 claiming. It was the colt's 4th start in 20 days, 2nd win. And according to the TVG guys, he's back in a 6f race on Sunday. :?
Maybe he got claimed away from Jacobson today and his new connections will back off on him?
One can hope.

I was just coming to post this. It was also his 8th start in 13 weeks and ran just 5 days ago on the 5th. Agree - so hoping he was claimed...
ETA: Not claimed - darn...

NYRA has investigated the Toque situation -- and cleared Jacobson.

Is it just me, or does this whole article seem... peculiar? Toque was rescued out of a slaughterhouse in New Holland? What I heard previously was that Toque had been found at the New Holland auction, and was later adopted (or sold) via AC4H. Not sure who owned him, coming out of the New Holland auction, but if I recall, AC4H largely deals in brokering "adoptions" (sales?) of broker-owned horses.

And what's with Toque ending up at Mill Ridge Farm in Calverton NY which is owned by Robin Gibbs? Mill Ridge Farm, in racing circles, would be the home of La Ville Rouge, and is a totally different place. What Robin Gibbs seems to own is something called Mil-Ridge Farm.

I have a lot of respect for David Grening and was shocked by the sloppiness in this article. But I think he is out of his knowledge range with "aftercare" issues. I posted in the Comments on the slaughterhouse thing and also mentioned what you reported about the name of the farm.

I also suggested that Jacobson could do himself a world of good by making public a list of all those horses he claims to have retired, and to where/whom they went.
