Awwww, I was hoping for a Omaha Beach and Maximum Security showdown. :cry:
Somebody needs to show Mandella a copy of the Farmers Almanac that is predicting cloudy skies with a chance of showers at Santa Anita Christmas week.
That should be enough for the authorities to cancel racing.

Subterfuge. Does not change the fact the industry is toxic from within and no one has the balls to truly rut out the cancerous tumors that are everywhere. Blaming PETA or anyone else, for that matter, for stunning slow responses by the industry to remove the tumors is getting a bit long in the toot...
