And evidently Matthew Cheng is not Big Ten.........
He's definitely not. He's banned from the forum....
Oh, I’m aware......he somehow found me on Facebook. He actually wants me to pass a message on to you. He’s found me other places as well. I’m starting to think I know what it’s like to be Trevor Denman.😉
I swear he copied everyone's usernames from the TBC FB page before I finally blocked him.
And yes, he used to private message me to pass along messages to Stark and others here on the forum.
I finally put the kibosh to that foolishness...

Many thanks!

now they need a racing secretary, too. the hell is going on over there??
The TDN article actually states that Hammerle was fired. I do wonder what is going on out there, but there seem to be many changes being made for the upcoming meet and CA racing, not just limited to SA.

No need to wonder......Ritvo was quoted as saying "we are going to be making changes, those that are willing to be a team member and embrace change will be a part of it, those who resist will not"

or something to that effect.

Still time for popcorn, sit back and watch Santa Anita evolve into Gulfstream West by Northwest.

And those that were willing but unsuccessful at whatever the next brainstorm is, will then also get their walking papers because their name and face will be tainted by that failure, whether it was any fault of theirs or not. Of course, lack of finding a miracle cure will eventually also have the wolves snapping at Mr. Ritvo's heels.

But it's probably an academic problem, because how much hotter can the weather get before it's too hot for horses to race outside...

Folks are getting restless...

David Meah@RiderDavey
Still no racing Secretary @santaanitapark? People have horses that are on vets list & are being told to ship them to Los Al to work off the list because there’s no racing Secretary yet? Personally as an owner/husband to a trainer & lover of horses think this is beyond ridiculous

I’m with you! What about the “ship and stay” program. Why the change from 2017 where 20% split between owner and trainer. Now only 10% to the trainer. Is my trainer or track going to pay my shipping across country!! What about the owners!

I thought the same thing. For small time owners like myself every dollar counts. Not happy ☹️

One hundred percent agree David. Having a condition book doesn’t solve the day to day issues that @AwayTheyGo and team was able to resolve.

Rumor central....

From behind the scenes, track maintenance foreman Dennis Moore is now looking for work?
