Pigland,
            I have been around the Chicago scene for the past 45 years
or so. Even though I no longer reside there, I still keep a good handle
on what is going on , especially with the "heydays" of the 70's and 80's
Hell, even my handle of "kingofcrete" is a Chicago based term. I was
"crowned" king when on back to back nights I took down half the
trifecta pool at Balmoral   Dan was one of many great trainers back then,
and he definitely was a force at every Chicago meet, and he made
his owners and his backers plenty of money, basically playing the claiming game to the max. Dan was very good at noticing mid-range talent
that with a little tweaking and a change of scenery, would improve and make money   He never really had the "cadillac" horse, the ones that raced upper level for him he took them there--Ritmo comes to mind along with Osbornes Thunder   While not always being politically correct,
Dan speaks what he thinks to be the truth, and there is no doubt he was
a very good horseman

So Dan and Scott got to play big shot around the racetrack for years until Scott was caught cheating. sneaky

Enough time has passed that Dan is misremembering his glory days before the M-99 scandal. doh

Dan knows that every word I said was and is still true. No matter how bad his memory is. bowing

Wait till he reads this, he will have a karate kicking cow and go ballistic ranting on youtube for days. laughing guy laughing guy

Dan has admitted his family's trouble with Scott in great detail in the past. popcorn

Now Dan wants to rewrite the record books and embellish his personal accomplishments. trophy

He ain't hurting nobody and he is sometimes entertaining. bowing




I want everyone to know the reason I edited out the part about Dan's mom.  3/3/15

I WAS ABSOLUTELY 100% WRONG FOR INCLUDING HER IN MY POST!

I APOLIGIZE TO DAN FOR INCLUDING HER IN MY COMMENTS!

Although she was connected to harness racing through Dan and Scott she was far enough removed that she should have been excluded from my comments.

Dan is right that family members not directly related to the harness business should be off limits.

I also did a poor job of not clarifying that her connection to my comments was through Scott not Dan.

But that clarification would not be necessary if I had simply avoided using an off limits family member.

I saw Dan's video and really did feel bad about including her. I don't blame him for being pissed.

Doesn't matter what percent was true or where the information came from. I was wrong.

I love aggravating Dan but not to the point where it violates his family privacy outside of horse racing.

Horsemen, owners, management, etc... are fair game. Not mothers, daughters, sons or wives.

I am sorry Dan and will avoid crossing that line in future posts.

I apologized publically because I really do feel bad about it and I owe Dan that honor to say it out loud.

I missed what happened in another forum involving a fight that included non horsemen family members.

But I do know that it got very ugly and should have never happened.

I don't want to be the person who starts another one of those.

I hope Dan accepts my apology or at least feels better that I won't ever stoop to that level again.

Crete,

Do you remember Denny Carlson and the Four Jacks Stable?

Once at Washington Park they set up a horse at 60-1 in the last race tri.

They were investigated and were accused of getting $80K out of a $125K pool.

Nobody could prove it and stable members claimed the amount was off a little.

Said they got closer to $100K.

I believe Brent Carter was down as trainer.

Also Frog (Don Paulik) went on to infamy for getting two lifetime bans in harness racing, one for him and one for his wife, for using M-99 on the horse Leggy at Balmoral in back to back years! Frog then somehow got a T-Bred license and used M-99 on his horse at Hawthorne, cashing big, and getting another lifetime ban!

Also Denny split a huge PK6 or PK9 pool at Sportsmans with none other than RTP back in the 80's. They had the only two winning tickets.


I have an old Tribune link but it's not working, here is one that does work.

This needs a bump. I want members to read my apology to Dan starting with the red sentence.

I edited out a part and included the apology in one of the above posts.

I thought it made more sense to apology where it happened instead of using a new post.
