Jeremy Plonk in his most recent ESPN column:
But, at the same time, the "what's next" for horse racing might be every bit as exciting and effective in righting the game's sinking ship. My hunch is that something on the business end is going to break in 2009, something that gives racing a pulse. What do I base that on? Namely, desperate times and an unbelievable amount of core people associated with the sport who love it to no end -- despite its many faults. This game is filled with fans and hard-working individuals who wouldn't know what to do in any other field, nor want to be a part of anything else. They live and breathe racing, and defend it mightily.
We think so too Jeremy.... at least we hope so.
