    Just an FYI, in case anyone is interested... I got a newsletter from LHRA a week or so ago, and they're waiving adoption fees for any of the Ryder River horses to approved adoptors. And they do adopt out-of-state. Here's the only link I have for more info:

    Slew or anyone,

    If you don't mind explaining, briefly:

    "That's what slot machines at the tracks get you. The very ugliest of humanity."

    Sorry to be ignorant about it/not get it. Some say the tracks need the casinos. Do you mean having casinos has brought more slime into racing as opposed to true horsemen?

    I'm from a generation where families would go to the track on the weekends for a nice, wholesome day/night out. Truly sad what has become of the sport.

    Oh, and bless you, Rory.

    Thanks so much.

    I think that's a huge overgeneralization myself akin to saying the money is the root of all evil. Well it's also the root of paying your horse bills. The danger is in relying on a source of income that may not last but that's just life in general.

    Slots can generate purses that are crazy big and there has been mutterings that these purses are an incentive to do bad things. I've always maintained the same thing about the mega trainers and the graded stakes program especially the races in the Triple Crown.

    And let's not forget that slots are not just in Louisiana. Some of the most revered trainers in racing are now based at slots tracks.

    Given the number of neglect and abuse cases that we've seen as of late, and how they encompass all breeds, to place blame on slot machines at racetracks seems somewhat shortsighted.
