Joe Drape I swear either was once kicked out of a NYRA track, lost money on horse, or was bumped off a flight by a trainer and has now an axe to grind against the sport. From all his articles he shows he really doesn't like racing. Worse yet The Old Grey Lady is more then happy to give him plenty of ink and space for his agenda.

I'm in support of keeping the sport in check and not letting a Mullins or Paragallo get away with something wrong by saying "I didn't know" or "I didn't do it". Yet that is all Joe Drape seems to print these days: anti-racing material.
