A Ledford piece reached the New York Times, in an article written by Bill Finley.

“I think all these guys are involved with that stuff,” said one of the bettors, Dom Stone.
David Philossoph, another bettor, had a different opinion.
“After what he did and what they found with his horses, I can’t believe he’s back,” he said.
