If you're like many horseplayers who want to bet horses in competitive fields at a fair price, and consider what else that's happening in the sport a distraction, you may have not been paying attention to the infighting in California. Today Art Wilson writes an article on the massive dysfunction in the state's racing corridors, with (it appears) no end in sight.
"So you think Republicans and Democrats on Capitol
Hill are the only dysfunctional ones with their gridlock and inability
to get anything done?
Well, I bring you the Thoroughbred Owners of California and
California Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association, who are waged in a
battle for supremacy in the state."
The article contains quotes from various industry watchers like Lou Raffetto and horseplayer advocate Andy Asaro. It is a good synopsis.
