No sense getting worked up about the report that horses are going to be painted according to their saddle cloth numbers at the upcoming Hollywood Park meeting.

It was an elaborate April Fool's joke planned and played out to perfection by TVG.

A TVG announcer admitted on the air a couple of days later that it was all an elaborate prank, detailing how they went about it and praising trainers Ron Ellis, Doug O'Neill and Marty Jones for being able to keep a straight face while carrying on their interviews about painting their horses.

Racing may be screwed up in a lot of ways, but it ain't THAT screwed up -- at least, not yet!

A better April Fools joke would have been to hand out pink slips to Todd Schrupp, Chris Shilltoulak, Ken Rudulph, Nick Hines and Bill Seward.

Oh wait, I actually want that to happen.
