Off-stride is so OFFSTRIDE with his comments about Illinois horses and trainers its funny. Where does he come up with the comment that Illinois breds have alot to be desired? Yes there desired alright for $50,000 on up in the last Meadowlans sale. And that Chicago racing has never been that strong.(maybe now) PLEASE tell me what rat Michigan bred horses are winning the money that Illinois breds are out east? And list all of them or go back to sniffing your model glue. Since your another clueless one I will help you out. Leading Chicago trainers at the BIG-M -----SHELDON LEDFORD, KEN RUCKER AND ERV MILLER. Did you ever hear of Loyal Opposition, Pleasac, Million Dollar Bye, Life is a Holiday, Big Tom, Etc., etc, etc, etc, etc. I just can not list them all. I know you must live in a cave to not even know this but I am trying to help you. But I see when you go to Sportscreek they don't even get the BIG-M on similcast so you just can't watch the BIG-M anyway. Get some Redman snuff and your lawn chair and stick to watching the Michigan fairs this summer. BECAUSE YOUR CLUELESS!!!!!!!
