    Seems like this guy should not be graced with "Mr. in front of his name.

    Here's another one courtesy of Ray Paulick:

    I can't help but notice by the crickets chirping on this thread that it appears nobody has any interest in this stuff anymore.
    If that's the case I'll post this stuff someplace else and you all can give the customary COTH jingles to the wasted efforts of Dick Hertz

    Well, I'm interested in hearing what is going on at Penn National.

    I have no personal knowledge of the issues and people, but I would like to know what is really going on out there.

    Not to mention, few if any of us are in a position to do anything about it even if we wanted to. If you want us to wring our hands along with you, consider it done.

    CEO Pay Breakdown
    2011

    Salary $1,702,745
    Bonus $0
    Value of Stock Awards $2,332,228
    Value of Option Awards $4,966,050
    Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation $2,556,981
    Change in Pension Value and Deferred Compensation Earnings $0
    All Other Compensation $420,330
    Total $11,978,334

    courtesy paywatch.org


    Seems Mr Carlino got his pay raised 2 million dollars since I last posted his out of control pay. Any horsemen see any significant increases in their income this year?
    Time for another update being as Mr Carlino is in the news.
    Here are the 2012 figures:



    Salary $1,753,827
    Bonus $0
    Value of Stock Awards $2,601,568
    Value of Option Awards $5,153,190
    Non-Equity Incentive Plan Compensation $2,502,006
    Change in Pension Value and Deferred Compensation Earnings $0
    All Other Compensation $529,415
    Total $12,540,006

    Looks like he got a raise of $561,672 since last time I posted his compensation package. Meanwhile, all barn construction has stopped for lack of money. Living quarters are more deplorable than ever and the place sucks probably more than it ever has.
    Business as Usual alive and well.

    The FBI has a hard on for those people apparently. People get caught every day trying to inject horses at race tracks and they get days not arrested by the FBI. There has to be more to this story.

    It's about time!

    Their indictments are an interesting read.

    I don't disagree that is about time especially with one name on that list but the point is that they are getting the book thrown at them for some reason. I am just curious what that reason is. They are facing 20 years in jail and a 250k fine. I know someone who got caught with a needle actually in a horse's neck at Penn National and he got days.

    This is exactly what is needed to deter all the cheats and dopers that are running loose in the sport.

    Is cheating that big of a deal? Does it really affect the outcome of races? Does it take food off the table of those playing fairly? More importantly, is it animal abuse? All one has to do is look towards Monmouth Parks leading trainer for the 2011 and 2012 seasons and see what that same trainer has done since their troubles in Tampa.

    Now that this person has been forced to play by the rules(due to being watched), this persons proves that it wasn't their horsemanship skills that were winning races at a high percentage.

    hes still training, has a program trainer, has owners too ...and PN knows all about it..yet ignores..

    I agree with Laurie - there has to be more to this than meets the eye. Bill Martin's help got busted here giving a shot and I think he got 30 days. I heard at least one of these guys was taken out in handcuffs this morning.

    What will be intersting is who else get's thrown under the bus, and run over. I'm sure with charges like these there will be massive deal making.

    You could arrest every clocker in the history of clockers for the same thing too. Why this guy?

    Right Laurie, biggest touters in the world, or not. How about trainers giving wrong names to clockers, etc. I would just think he would say his watch was busted or he needed new glasses. :/
