Has Marcus Hersh finally jumped?

http://www.drf.com/news/article/70121.html

The old "Look at this horse's name!" lead is one tipoff. Then he cheekily trashes Hawthorne. Then he declares a track bias as if it's written in stone. Then the little rib poke for Galassi. Sounds like he's getting a little delirious from being assigned to the Stickney Spa and Chicago in general. But I really was wondering how he'd react after rubbing elbows with the crust--upper and otherwise--at Belmont on the 29th of October. And only one more week for Horsin' Around!

Does Marcus drink? Can we buy him one?

Maybe Marcus is a little depressed.  This is the time of the year when he usually goes to New Orleans for the FG meet.  He might have to go to Shreveport this year.  On the other hand, he could be one of those damn Hawthorne bashers.  Basically, Tommy, to borrow words from Terry, you are probably being "over dramatic" here and reading something else into the words of this impartial reporter.

One of the problems with a board like this is that messages on the screen are usually taken in a hard, cold literal tone. I agree APCD, Marcus is a good writer. This probably started out with him at his keyboard asking "What the hell am I going to write about?"  Smiley

TRACK BIAS: All you have to do is round turn for home hit the golden rail and your a winner. NO. There's no bias at the Palace.
