here since it's so hard for you to read without them here you go bitch............ ................. ............ Is that enough for you mother fucker

lol, youíre such a douche.  Would have been easier just to using a comma or period once in a while than make a big stink when someone tries to correctly read what you wrote, and has a hard time understanding what you wrote.
Now, thatís double talk, but correctly punctuated.    73cv.2

Nope, I can read it, but why bother if you canít process how to form a sentence.  Why should I have to guess what you mean?  Are you in a rush to finish because your feeble mind wonít remember if you put in a period somewhere, you hick?

Man, you are too easy.  Your fóking ego is so big, you just have to continue this nonsensical convo.
Just learn how to pass 3rd grade writing skills and STFU.

I get the emotional aspect of this. I get not wanting to lose a horse. I also get the economic side of this. However, all that has to be put aside because...it's business. If you don't want to lose the horse, don't put him in that spot. I get that you are now going to have to race above his/her head, but that's your choice. I bought a horse from out of town and raced him at the Meadowlands. Didn't work out the way I planned so I stuck him right into claimers. Got a second and a win in the same class. Fred Grant whispered to me one night that if I raced him back in the same spot, his owner was going to claim him. I said thanks, don't bother, buy him (I offered to split the tax). He passed, LOL. He also didn't claim him, LOL.

Yes it is a business... but it isn't just that simple. There is something of an etiquette involved here, and people who don't follow the unwritten rules generally should expect to make enemies. Some don't care... fine. But understand people hold grudges and one thing like that can color your future interactions for a long long time. You might end up paying a price significantly higher than just the claiming tag down the road because you chose to have that bidness is bidness attitude.

Now if someone comes along and expresses interest and especially if they offer to just outright buy iinstead... then yeah, fair game... and no crying.

I never claimed a trainer's last pay horse. If he owned the horse, that is a different story. He has the money to do with as he see fit.
Fifty plus years ago Jesse Willis claimed my only horse. I reinvested the money in younger and better stock, and was much better off for it.
One thing I have learned. The more horses claimed FROM YOU the better your end of the year financial statement looks.

I am just an old horse trainer still going around in circles. Sometimes Fast. Sometimes Half-Fast.

I get it. Listen, I don't want to put a "nice" guy out of business, and I probably wouldn't. Claiming and all, last horse too, makes it even worse, LOL. It's hard for everyone to be happy in business dealings, today, tomorrow, in the future. At some point somebody wins and somebody loses, LOL. Goes both ways.
