Christmas Eve Racing stories

The Toronto Sun continues to follow up stories on harness drivers/trainers and some thoroughbred people who have been suspended for using drugs in racing. It’s a good news/bad news situation – readers know the tracks are trying to clean things up but you can hear them still saying – see I knew there were drugs in racing!

Patrick Husbands made the news in his hometown of Barbados, complaining that the track, Garrison Savannah, needs to be improved (the track has had to cancel many racing days this year because of poor conditions). Patrick will ride in Trinidad next week and oh, yes, he can’t ride at Woodbine for 60 days if he loses his appeal of the ruling against him (when he hit jockey Constant Montpellier on the head with his helmet).
Check it out...

Best wishes to everyone and enjoy your family!
