Very well stated. Unfortunately, this happens all the time in the Thoroughbred aftercare world. This should handled privately. A friend of mine said that human egos are huge in Thoroughbred aftercare and I have to agree as this just proves it.
Wish I could help out financially but I have my own OTTB to take care of. I did share this story on my Facbook timeline and shared it on an OTTB group.
Cannot understand why this horse, that finished DFL in its prior start on 11/23/2013 and only had one posted workout in June 2013, was allowed to enter this race. Shame on the track for allowing this to happen. Shame on the owner/trainer for trying to push this horse one more time. And his previous connections should be ashamed, too.
