At Hawthorne today. In addition to the loss of a nice horse, he was claimed for $18k and the new owner has no recourse. I don't know how much longer I can do this.

Getting the message your gone breaks my heart. You were a cool horse to work with and I’ll never forget the time I was blessed to work with you at Arlington and Hawthorne rest easy Cashel Rock .

Voiding claims on horses that get injured or die during the race is clearly something that must be in effect throughout the country. Like medical records staying with horses, that would go a long ways towards cleaning up racing and improving its image.
Add to early agenda for a nation-wide racing czar.

RIP Cashel Rock. You were loved.

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

@DRFMcGee Per @keenelandracing stewards, Amandine suffered injuries during R8 on the turf course here yesterday that necessitated her euthanization. Extremely unfortunate. Stakes-winning British-bred 4yo filly was G1-placed.

R.I.P :(
