Itís pretty obvious over the past 5 years the 1% big owners/trainers just own the sport. Just crushes the smaller guy obviously but pretty soon Burke will be racing against himself at his own farm. Nothing against the guyÖhe built his stable and has big time money behind me.

What if the money generated in each state for the stake purses stayed in the same state. That would be a new concept. Let's say for Ohio a horse must be Sired and 100% Ohio owned to be eligible to race in any Ohio stake races. All states would have the exact same requirements. Only the Grand Circuit would be open to anyone from anywhere.

Yes, he's has so many good Seasides this year. He probably will sweep the 1st leg of the Sires Stakes next  Sat. also.  1.50 is grand circuit material. I doubt if last yrs champion gulf shores can beat that.

Colt hasnít even qualified back yet has he?

Burke racing & the partners want every last penny. Their greed is bad for the game. It has accelerated the exodus of the few fans that were left.

Same thing, big stables take all the money leave scraps. Think back, it has been that way forever. Both stakes and overnights. The top stables at every track didn't leave much for the small guy. Gee, Seems it was Haughton, Dancer, Miller etc then the Swedes Aussies and Kiwis. It's all about how much you can afford to loose.

I have always questioned the B and C level casino tracks that race for good money and a couple of times a year will have Invitationals that will go for 100k 200k ++ and if these type of races are really necessary.

As on track handle falls faster than the Titanic and racetrack operations have shifted their business model to online as it obvious by the post time drags and the lack of upgrade in facilities --- Then Why give hundreds of thousands of purse money that is going to be snatched up by out of town trainers / in many cases out of town drivers / out of town owners --- instead of putting that money back into the purse account for the local horsemen and writing series that are dedicated to horsemen that race at that track or that state ?

I still say all stakes should be written sired and 100 owned in that state. Keep the money where it came from.

The Ohio racing commission has failed to do their stated mission: "dedicated to the protection, preservation and promotion of horse racing and its related industry components. . . . shall use its best efforts to promote horse racing and breeding TO THE CITIZENS OF OHIO". Having said that, it seem the trainers should also be Ohio citizens, that is, permanent residents. Trainers hire grooms and second trainers, buy hay, feed, straw in Ohio, rent stalls, build barns, etc., and pay taxes in Ohio. So not only owned and bred in Ohio, but also trained in Ohio.  This idea has been tossed around for a few years, but the OSRC has done nothing to mandate this, and consequently nothing to promote racing for the citizens of Ohio.  If anyone reading this is serious about stopping what is going on in Ohio, contact the OSRC. The number is 614-466-2757.  We cannot change the rules this year, but changes are badly needed to keep harness racing in Ohio - even for the little guys.
