    Suggest you set aside some time and read all of this marathon thread to bring yourself up to date on what all is going on at that sorry excuse for a track

    I first found this thread by googling a certain trainer. I wanted to see if there were suspensions, drug positives, or anything of that nature.

    Well, I found this thread. I did go back and read page by page to the present. It was intriging, informative, and suspensful. It read like a suspense novel to me, only sadly it is real and the victims are the poor horses and racing at Penn.

    I am hoping everyday that things change for the better for our equine athletes and the honest people involved in racing here.

    It is also a little sad for me that the thread that helped open my eyes seems to be fading a bit.

    For those of you in a position to see the goings on please keep the rest of us up to date.

    You can credit that to the moderators.

    Yeah you're right. Would've been cool if all the censored and delted stuff was still there and all the banned folks were still here. Truth is though that that crackdown was caused by SB and man in black sicking their lawyers on the website with threats of lawsuits and such.

    Actually I knew the person was a traqiner at Penn. I wanted to see if they had ever had any positives, as it is so obvious the horses were winning every time you turn around, but not doing so well if claimed. Of course, I did learn some other things by finding this thread, I happen to care what happens at Penn, I'm sorry I gave you such a laugh. I was not looking for some sorry ass low life ans came upon Penn National. It is just possible other people care about these horses and this track.

    No need to apologize. Making me laugh is a good thing Lord knows the place doesn't give anybody much to be amused about.

    Tell you what, check out the Racing Commissioners International website. On there you'll find a lot of recent rulings. Paulick report can be informative as well.

    BTW. Can anybody remember the name of that poor old cripple with the cracked cannon bone that SB gave to Double D to send to a "good home"?
    Remember he then wound up in Boston running for Budrewicz/Longo?
    Any of you remember that one?

    Another question folks, can anybody tell me why the corrupt vet isn't allowed on the premises? His associates are still practicing but he's not allowed on the grounds.

    Amazingly enough in spite of the place being such a rumor mill the reasoning for this has been kept pretty quiet. Anybody know?

    What? No comment from anybody yet about the new stall assignments?

    I think I'm starting to hear crickets on this thread. Guess nobody cares about this stuff anymore.

    Default Playing catch up

    Been sitting back on my heels awhile just reading, but now have time to share some things I have on good authority.

    The stud colt Mister Mover, taken off of the Linda Clement farm along with a broodmare of hers and now deceased Unusual DJ at the beginning of the summer, was euthed by the rescue that took him in in mid July due to severe neurological symptoms that became more apparent as he was fed. Looking at his odd race history one has to wonder if he had been exhibiting neurological symptoms all along and the morons that had him under their care simply ignored him, trying to use his bizarre agitation to their advantage on the track.

    Not seeing much more on here about SB... heard the other day that now her acceptable form of retiring horses is to send them to Mel Hoover 'to be resold to good homes'. This actually came from her lips. Makes me hurl a little in the back of my throat when I see PA HBPA next to her name.
    No good deed will go unpunished.

    Thanks for that info, Driven. I'm very sad to hear of Mister Mover's sad end, As I said I followed him some time back. Sometimes it seems these horses just can't catch a break.

    SB doesn't use the retirement program? Nice.

    They had him at a farm I visit sometimes. He was obviously suffering from some kind of encephalitis. Stall running was a better term to use for him than walking. They said he needed to wear blinders 24/7 towards the end just to keep himself from running himself to exhaustion. Very sad. It really looked like they were starting to make progress with him, I would have taken him after they gelded.
    On a related topic, heard the farm he was taken from shut down a month or so ago. Good riddance! Unfortunately LC called Gouch again and sent 6, some in foal and some along with babies at their sides straight to slaughter - and did it pretty quickly without many knowing. Something about leaving the state for a family illness. This woman is sick - wouldn't be surprised if it was for her own mental illness. Last year she had a dam die during foaling. Baby survived. She let the stud's owner know and when he asked what had happened she said she didn't know but he could come cut her open and figure it out if he wanted to. 3 days later he stopped at the farm to check on the baby and the mare was still laying dead in the stall with the baby. Before he grabbed the foal and took it back to his farm he asked LC why. She said she didn't have the equipment to remove the mare nor the stall space to keep the baby, it was fine where it was. Can't imagine the horror that took place over there that we [I]don't[I] know about.

    Sending to Mel Hoover is apparently a retirement program in Ms President's eyes. She'll get what's coming to her - and I have a feeling pretty soon. She's PO'd too many that have worked closely with her and been burned.

    Just when you think it can't get any sadder or more disgusting. How can people be so cold and cruel?

    I find it horrendous in anyone, but more so in women. I can't imagine what horror that little foal experienced, I'm just grateful someone removed it.

    There are many rescues and people who I am sure would take a foal, why not at east try to find help, I just hate hearing of these sickos and their deeds, but at least when we do we know help and consequences are still needed. All is not well.

    Would like to remind all Dauphin county residents that prosecutor Marsico is up for re-election tuesday. The poor handling and bungling that's occured with this whole PN situation should be remembered on election day folks.

    Also, residents of the state of Maine will have a referendum to vote for or against casinos at that states racetracks. I would urge them to vote no. It will be the biggest mistake any state can ever make.

    Its been brought to my attention that a few folks have been a little spooked by knowledge that this website is being monitored. I for one am delighted to hear that and welcome those who are looking on as there is quite a bit to be learned here
