Three Months for the Pitch

The ORC ruled today that the horse who took a shortcut in this video should not have. The race happened in October. Appeals like this should take hours, not months. What took so long? I have no idea.

The ruling should have taken no more than 30 seconds. 3 pylons. That's it. DQ.

Cut them some slack. They are probably swamped with all of Dutrow's appeals and such.

Is Betfair inaccessible to us across the pond?

Would it make sense to take that betting exchange course?

Why wasn't he dq'd on the spot?

I live about 5 minutes from the track.

This is one of the many many reasons why I go to Western Fair about once a year...

I am a huge fan of racing, but I seem to make the two hour drive to woodbine about 50 times as often.
