No track that has a casino will let him race. Too much risk of losing the casino license for allowing undersirables on the premises.

They threw out several cheaters already so why would they take him? Is it because he's a hillbilly?

I don't think you'll ever see Eric drive another horse again.

Did you already contact the tracks that have casinos and ask them if they will  let Ledford race Mr know it all? What a dumb ass statement as usual on your part.

I said it's not hard to drive crotch rockets.  The horses everyone mentioned are great horse flesh to begin with.  Are you telling me those horses couldn't win without Eric?  What's his driving percentage on lower conditioned and claiming horses not trained by Rucker,  Anderson,  or Himself.  He burns them out quite a bit.  He always guns and doesn't look to give a horse a trip.  Walter Case didn't need Belcher's horses.  Eric needs a little soda or an ego and driving style adjustment.  Besides,  why are we giving him credit for having any ability???  Everthing he has accomplished is now under a dark cloud of suspicion and rightfully so.  I seriously doubt that aranesp is their first elixir.

dont think that matters paul - pocono has had all kinds of problems with george napolitano ranging from positive tests to numerous cases of him being physically violent- starting fights and shlit - and even with the injun casino owners this year, i see he is still there - obviously they dont care about undesireables.  if you went into bellagio and beat the crap out of people on three ocasions you can bet your ass they would throw you out the door - FOR GOOD - but these race tracks dont give a fart who they let in

None of what George Nap has done holds a candle to a charge of race fixing, which is what Ledford is facing.

we can debate values all day long if you want but i am not sure that race fixing is worse than assault with a deadly weapon - your call.

I'm talking in terms of racing related violations. In any case was George Nap ever criminally charged in that assault, or was it just handled as a racing issue?

there have been more than one.  the latest which happened last meet I believe he "settled" and paid a quite substantial sum to the other party who he mangled in exchange for them handling it adminstratively and not suing - Im not a lawyer - and he did some kind of anger management program - apparently he used to be a professional boxer or something is what I hear and when he beat the crap out of another driver it could have come down to that.  you might want to find out more details from someone maybe who races there or drives or trains there who might know more details of the whole thing
