There always seems to be a plethora of photos and stories about KentD not riding 100% to the wire.
I just really liked the nickname Sleepy Kent ;)

I’ve always used ‘Meaux Money in that he owes me meaux money. He’s made stiffing over the last sixty yards an art.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

117 horses have been claimed for $2,979,500 during the first six weeks

Maybe the state of California can suggest some innovative way of recirculating the sales tax back into the industry (not necessarily driven by PETA) but horse welfare nonetheless.
New York has no sales tax on claims, much easier to do this there than in states that tax claims. Most owners would love to contribute to retirements rather than pay sales tax, but how many times have you seen states stop taxing something like this? I'd rather see the end of the claiming game as we know it and the implementation of a European system for ranking horses of like ability. That would also help ensure safe landings for horses that owners want to keep or reclaim, but lose to a system that ensures it will be near impossible to keep track of them.

New York takes a big step forward in funding aftercare for retired racehorses

And I'm all for it, anything has to be better than dollars in addition to the rake of each betting dollar going into Gov. Newsom's general fund where he earmarks funds for the State's sanctuary status and hires legions of lawyers to do battle with the Federal Government in court. Not where I want my contributions spent!
