Roger Stein, the So Cal based trainer, asked horseplayers to take a stand to protest the Los Alamitos takeout increase on his radio show today.
"It [the takeout increase] is a mistake." Stein said.
"Horseplayers have to come together...... to say they are not going to take it anymore. Unite, tell them we are not going to be gouged anymore. Pick a day, pool don't play."
His guests on the show agreed.
Bettor Bob: "this is hardball. They say they want to compete with other jurisdictions. They want to compete alright - by competing with others who rip off their customers."
Guest John Hardoon "2 full points is absurd and it is madness."
