    My Rep Joe Pitts has begun to look into horse racing safety for the jockeys and horses. http://pitts.house.gov/press-release...-jockey-safety

    Default Good Job Commission!!!:)

    Is very seldom that I see this Racing Commission do anything good or noteworthy so when they do something right or good I feel its worth mentioning.

    Its been brought to my attention that a couple of well known program trainers have lost their stalls. These knuckleheads should never have had them in fact the one guy didn't even have any horses.

    This is long overdue and hopefully more such actions will be coming. Good Job Commission and PN Management.

    Now let's see if HBPA has a major cow over it lol

    Penn Nationals latest news flash on the overnights:

    Anyone caught feeding the cats will be automatically suspended for 30days.

    Default DON'T FEED THE CATS

    Well, now that the poor cats can't be fed, I'm sure that will fix all of our problems at Penn.

    What the heck? Starving cats running all over the place is always great for PR.

    In this particular case these peoples names are irrelevent and not worth mentioning. Suffice it to say they were a couple of insignificant nobodies who never should have had stalls. Salient point being that program training is not as welcome there as it used to be which is progress in the right direction and good.

    Seems with all these edicts and diktats on the overnight sheets they may soon have no room to print the overnight itself! What's really ironic is that hard as these people try to create the most unfriendly, unwelcome environment they can, they still can't get horsemen to leave. They've really got to be scratching their collective heads over it.
    First no media now no cat feeding. Anybody have peta's phone #?

    I do not see on any of the overnights listed that there is a penalty for feeding the cats at PN...

    The idea that there will be suspensions for feeding the cats must have come from somewhere. I didn't see it in the overnights either. well, hope it was just some rumor that got started. Even when fed they will still do their mousing duty.

    They're talking about the actual printed overnight sheets you get at the track. Not what's on the internet. Don't believe it? Go there and get one yourselves. Their in a mailbox right past the security gate.

    Latest Memo: Now hanging in each corner of every barn

    Cat feeding is now permitted again. For personal cats, in tack rooms, or personal shedrow areas (not everyone has a tack room, some dont even have a storage shed) .

    However leaving trays of food for feral cats is greatly discouraged.

    The HPBA has put aside funds to spay and neuter the cats, and they freely encourage everyone to participate.

    Hoping that they've initiated a TNR operation and that would be a requirement, not to feed the cats so that they can be trapped and sterilized. It's necessary to not feed them while being trapped so if that's what they are doing it's a good thing.

    Well, it looks like the people who send horses to slaughter at least won't have to sneak to Canada as some (wonderful) little town called Rockvile in Missouri is happy to have a horse slaughthouse in their town. It sure is hard to be happy about their new found way to boost their economy
    I hope anti salughter policies hang tough around here. All this is possible due to our President, nice.

    Default HBPA ELECTION (finally!!!)

    Just got postcard as I'm sure many of you wont to advise of a PA HBPA General Membership Nomination Meeting to be held in the Track Kitchen on Saturday August 4, 2012 at 12:00 noon.
    Purpose being to receive nominations for the 2012 election of the President and Board of Directors.

    Anyone interested in replacing this corrupt bunch I'd urge to attend.

    Not that I've heard. Yours truly wasn't at their meeting and haven't heard anything except that SB is not seeking re-election.
    Keep an eye here:http://www.pahbpa.com/default.asp as well as their facebook and twitter places where they're liable to post more.

    Oh guess what folks, couldn't let this go
    There is no campaigning, handbills, talk or discussion of any kind allowed at PNRC. None of this can be discussed anywhere on the grounds according to the sign on the kitchen door

    I guess that's why we haven't heard. Never a dull moment folks.

    BTW. for the record the cat policy hasn't changed. Anyone caught feeding them will still be ruled off so now the place has hungry cats everywhere. Whatever

    On the issue of HBPA can anyone tell us why ice used to be free and is now $2 a bag?
