 Czar, I like the sound of that title, I could wear me a monocle and give orders

I could do for horsemen around the globe what I did for the horsemen of the Yonker

Keep me in mind, I am interested

Ice, you are older than dirt. So, you know that racing in NY used to be very much like this. You could not enter a horse unless you and your horse was approved. A driver could not race unless he was approved. No "P" drivers. Every horse on race day had a pre-race blood screen, done by the lab, on the grounds. Post race 5 of 8 horses in the race were tested with an additional blood draw and urine, in races with trifecta wagering. In all others it was first and second finishers as well as a beaten favourite and a random.
 As for police action, there were a good number of scandals that led to criminal charges. Most of this was funded by the state's piece of the handle. The state back then would get a 7% cut of a couple million in handle. Today, the state gets next to nothing and cares next to nothing about a micro revenue stream that cost them big bucks if they do their job.
 Comparing harness racing in America to racing in Hong Kong Secretariat to Zippy Chippy. Yea they are both race horses but...

Exporter correct most of my life is in the past and remember Roosevelt when it was the place to race we had horses with John Chapman. You make a good argument so in your opinion where did it go wrong.

Competition for greater returns to the state. Lotto, Lottery, scratch-offs, OTB , simulcasting... All cheaper and better returning investments to the state.

IMO what we have needs to be dismantled to find out those with the resolve to make the game better for the honest horseman, the bettor, the return to the government and track operators. More than likely there will be casualties and less racing and less breeding but if that is what's needed to survive, so be it.

If people rolled and pena or whoever are behind the cheating...he can be charged with organized crime. The statutes can put him away for 25 plus years

Yonkers, Roosevelt, Monticello and Meadowlands for sure pulled pre race blood on every horse. It was instituted by the various horsemen associations to protect the horsemen from racing a horse with an illegal substance. If your horse came up positive before the race, your horse was scratched, trainer was fined but it was not recorded as a positive on the trainers record since horse never actually raced. They got rid of that kind of testing mid 90's. I had to scratch one at Roosevelt that way due to a bute miscalculation. I believe the fine was 250.

Mike is absolutely right and master is again master of nothing, time to change your moniker. Maybe we can help you, how about DUD.
