Someone wants to change that, in his own small way. Driver Billy Davis, who's no slouch with over 400 wins last season, is one of the more refreshing, transparent and honest folks on twitter you'll ever see from racing. He'll tell his followers what horse's he likes today, what they did last time, and even what his strategy might be.
Here's a snip from yesterday via Twitter:
Racing at Flamboro this afternoon. 10 drives
In the 5th race I'm on St Lads Glamourgirl(3-1). This filly Is very green, she won last week in the front, I'd like to race her from behind
Hoosier King (3-1) in the 6th, was 2nd last week and surprised me on how much gate speed he has,I have the rail today,expect me on the front
In the 9th race Maes Rustler(2-1) has the 8 hole today which will make it tough, but he is really fast at the start, giddy up
It's what this business needs more of from our participants. I predict we'll see more and more people like Billy doing his or her thing on the micro-blogger and elsewhere.
