   I was at the OTB early Friday night for the Meadowlands show and watched the Eric Ledford interview. He really ripped the Johnstons by saying they have no clue on how to run a business and are trying to rob the horsemen out of everything. I might not be his biggest fan but he had the BALLS to SAY IT LIKE IT IS here. I wonder what the greedy ones thought about that. Eric at least you were smart enough to leave before it got this bad.

I saw the interview myself and I loved what he said when " Holllywood " Hayden asked him what's going on with Chicago harness racing.

   I think after what he said about the Johnston's the Ledford's better think about sending the other 40 head in Chicago to the Big M. before Seldon has something happen to him like what happened to Rick Dane.

   When the gestapo gets a hard on for you they can make your life miserable.

Eric ledford sounds like hes getting frustrated like most of Illinois horseman. Very nice job. I wish others would join together and give there opinions.
Where can I get a copy of profit loss statements of otb's and racetracks ? from the IRB ?
why cant they just sell there tracks to people that will cultivate the sport. It used to be we were one of the countries best now were one of the worst.

Has Tony Morgan been asked that question on a live braodcast at Dover? If he hasn't he should.

Good for Ledford Some of you other wimps need to step up to the plate or continue getting
the shaft everytime there is a new contract.  I was in Florida when the strike settled and
heard everyone was happy.  You dumb ass's lost another 10%.  Everyone is jumping up
and down.  NO WONDER IL RACING SUCKS.  Pretty soon you won't have anything to negotiate with.  Have fun racing for $3,500.  Last time I checked gas was $2.50 a gallon.  You better be
first or second or you loose money.  GOD BLESS the BIG M.  Less day's a week, a quality
product. You Keep racing lame horses everyday of the week.  You won't have anything to race.
