    These are lifetime stats for some of the top guys in the business who got the creme of the TB crop. People used to accuse Lukas of cheating because he won this much). Others said it was because he got the best horses. Now here comes this guy at Philly.
    39% last year, batting 43% this year. Something happened starting in 2010.

    PENNSYLVANIA RACING EXCLUSIVE

    Darrel Delahoussaye, 48, will have all remaining charges expunged from his record upon completion of a plea agreement between Mr. Delahoussaye, his attorney William Goldman Jr. of Doylestown, PA and Dauphin County First ADA Francis T. Chardo. According the United Justice System Website, Delahoussaye's charges have been moved to Plea Court where the formal plea will be processed at the Dauphin County Courthouse. "There have been highs and lows in my training career and my time at Penn National was no different. Unlike what my detractors say about me, I personally grieved each and every time one of my horses broke down," said Darrel Delahoussaye. "I always went to the hospital to visit a jockey if he went down on one of my horses. There are other trainers at Penn National with a higher breakdown rate than me. What I learned from this experience is that an outsider in Dauphin County can be used as a scapegoat for other people's crimes."

    Delahoussaye, a native of New Iberia, Louisiana, and trainer of 249 career winners (according to Equibase) including 82 in 2009 when he trained primarily for Michael Gill, was originally charged with two felony counts of Theft by Deception along with three misdemeanors; Administering Drugs to Racehorses (Class 1), Rigging a Public Exhibition (Class 1) and Tampering with Public Record/Information (Class 2). Both felony counts were dropped when conflicting testimony was given at a November 1 pre-trial hearing in front of Magisterial District Justice Lowell Witmer. According to the transcript from this hearing, Delahoussaye Attorney William Goldman cross-examined one witness whose ultimate testimony was in conflict with the Grand Jury presentment by Francis Chardo used to indict Delahoussaye.

    According to a source familiar with Mr. Delahoussaye, plans to go to trial became aborted because the evidence against Mr. Delahoussaye was extremely weak. As part of this agreement, Mr. Delahoussaye will not have any charges on his public record unless he is found to be in contempt his ARD agreement. As part of this agreement, Mr. Delahoussaye agrees to not seek renewal of his racing privileges with the PHRC at any point in the future, but it does not preclude Delahoussaye from seeking a Trainer's license in another jurisdiction.

    The Pennsylvania ARD (Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition) program is designed to eliminate charges for first time offenders. ARD is not an admission of guilt, nor is it considered a conviction and any charges brought against an individual will not remain on their permanent arrest record. Mr. Delahoussaye has been a cooperative ally with the Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission who has been doing their own investigation into alleged wrongdoing at Penn National. The PHRC probe is in full swing and several individuals licensed in various capacities are being investigated.

    The Dauphin County Grand Jury Investigation remains active and one more individual will likely be arrested within the next two months. Under Pennsylvania Law an Investigative Grand Jury can remain active for up to 18 months

    What a peach! My impression of him completely changed now that I know that he always went to visit the jockeys he sent to the hospital. That is one heck of a time commitment!

    Delahoussaye was only cleared of certain charges simply because the investigation got loused up. This stuff happens all the time and the guilty walk. Make no mistakes about it, Darrel Delahoussaye falls into the catagories of horse abuser and cheat. Fact.
    Others from that Gill operation who have gotten off light or scotch free to date are Tony Adamo and Tim Hooper.

    We can all sleep much better knowing this individual will once again be gracing the backside of some racetrack somewhere

    There have been several horses found in the kill pens. One lady trainer, Im told (not confirmed yet) has been ejected, TH is another trainer (no word of his status).

    The front office is now claiming their stand is: without a bill of sale to show due diligence in placing a retired tb, trainers will be hung from the high gallows.

    sound familar? However, much of this still needs to be verified.

    State Police were called to rescue a loose horse on 22 this morning, scratches and wounds, AND> skinny!!! got out of BL's farm -- you'd think a skinny horse would stop to graze in O'dells hay fields rather than running to a highway ---

    Hope the horses are ok. Glad management is taking a stand if these horses were recklessly "moved on". But, who are TH and BL?

    Seems management is trying to create the perception of taking a stand about a lot of things. While perusing the brand new hot off the press horsemen's guide of 2011 I find this:
    Rule 1.2 F on pages 6 and 7
    "It shall be a violation of Racetrack's standards of conduct for any person covered by the Guide to disparage PNGI or the Racetrack, or any of their affiliates, employees, staff, or personnel, in any manner by any type of medium. This includes, but is not limited to, disparagement by use of the internet, e-mail, and via any social media such as blogs, Facebook, etc."

    ROTFLMFAO! Shall we call this the Dick Hertz rule?

    While I tremble at the thought of Penn's threats, I think it bears mentioning that just as soon as DD was cleared of all charges, we find immediately Jay Budrewicz entering horses almost on a daily basis at both Philly and Suffolk simultaneously. He must have bought himself a private jet to cover both those tracks

    We also find good old Edward Longo back in business too

    TH most likely stands for Tim Hopper as he had no problem destroying and then sending horses to the killers when he was training out of Elk Creek.

    Ok, here we have results from today:
    http://www.equibase.com/static/chart...052811USA8.pdf
    Check out the hands that this beast has been in his whole life Starting with Scott Lake this poor animal can't get a break.
    Anybody know who this Harris guy is out at Mountaineer? Can we add him to the list of DD paper trainers?

    Suffice it to say the Edward Longo stable is burning up the tracks

    Has anyone heard any updates on Mister Mover? Or, the last couple of posts re: the horses found in a bad place? Was anyone held accountable?

    Mister Mover is doing well, gaining weight and will be gelded. VP of Penn National and the racing commission were immediately notified about both horses Mister Mover and Unusual DJ. Emails and voice mails have gone unanswered, (not even an acknowledgment via email) asking for an update and if those responsible have been held accountable.

    Frustrating to say the least!

    I am happy to at least hear Mister Mover is doing well. He is a horse I followed for a time for sentimental reasons, although not while with the most current connections. Thank you for the update.

    Why did Mister Mover end up in a kill pen?

    Here is a link to his lifetime record.
    http://www.equibase.com/premium/eqbH...845&registry=T


    Notice his last four races(click on See All Results link). A five month layoff from dec 09 until may 2010 and an owner/trainer change. Perhaps showing some signs of ailment then?

    Then given a whole year off from may 2010 to may 2011 due most likely due to some type of injury from his return race or training program? Once again, another owner/trainer switch.

    This time around, Mister Mover who hadnt raced for a full calender year was given only five days to recover before running back a second time and most likely led to his almost demise.

    Now why would anyone run a horse back that fast who hadnt raced in over a year and most likely was coming back from an injury?

    It's like throwing the trash out to some people in this industry.
    Infact, some of these owners and trainers reminds me of parents who have no business having children.
