I just want to confirm that Peter Galassi is a prominent poster on BTW.  He spoke to Joe D. and confirmed his participation on harness racing's #1 forum.  Peter is a true announcer and Chicagoan, who would never break bad on the Geasapo, even after they treated him like dirt - nullifying 16 years of meritorious service (see the Tony Salvaro file for more of the same abhorrent treatment of longtime voices).  Peter went on to tell Joe D. that he's an avid BTW reader on both forums, but gets a real chuckle from some of the posters on the harness side.  Mr. Galassi, who doesn't have a swelled head (physically or otherwise), would never desert the town he loves for a few pesos, wouldn't leave love ones behind to rot in a Turkish prison-style nursing home, and is perhaps the most versatile announcer in America, along with Dave Johnson, Tom Durkin, John Bothe, and a few select others.  He also doesn't lie about reading and posting at North America's premiere harness racing forum.  I think we all need to support more days being given to Hawthorne harness in the future, so we can hear a true patriot and Chicago icon, Mr. Peter Galassi, announce harness racing with passion, not annoyance like his successor at Balmoral.  Thank goodness Peter has remained loyal to his roots and not shuffled off to some remote outpost of doomed racing, thereby depriving us of having access to his talent and knowledge of the game.  Keep up the good work Peter.   trotter  TC

Hes gone and Peter is still here doing a great job by just announcing the races. Peter keep up the good work and kick Scott in the balls if he ever tries coming back to Chi-town.

      TC:

     Thanks for being a "suck up" as Richard Breth put it.   Leave it to Dickie boy to mention the word "SUCK" in his posts.  LOL Dickie knows all about sucking things, especially objects, young boy body parts, and the Johnston family assess.  LOL

    NOTE TO JANINE:  WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO BAN RICHARD BRETH, OR AT THE VERY LEAST, EDIT/DELETE HIS POSTS LIKE YOU DO TO EVERYONE ELSE?  WHY DO YOU ALLOW THIS J*A*G*O*F*F SPECIAL PRIVILIGES. 

     TC starts a nice thread about the greatest Chicago announcer ever; Peter Galassi, and Janine allows a *** and Child Molester like Richard Breth the opportunity to ruin the thread with his egging on bullshit.  Come on Janine, its starting to become obvious of what you are trying to do and who you are protecting.

     By the way, everything TC said about Peter Galassi is absolutely true.  It is him posting on this site under the name, "petgal."  Peter is a great guy who is on the horsemens side.  He told the Johnston's to F*U*C*K off big-time.  Peter has more class in his baby finger than the entire Johnston family.  Go suck on that one Richard Breth...oh, I forgot, if it isn't a little boys pee-pee, you're not interested in sucking on it!

Its not a thing against Peter. he is good announcer. TC calls any one that posts in favor or defense of any one in industry a suck up or ass sucker. Making sure he sees it same.

    Richard/Burton:

     You know damn well what posts of yours need deleting.  Just like Burton, you make posts on the forum trying to egg people on and stir the pot.  There was no need for you to post that TC was a suck up.  If you felt that he was a suck up, why not IM him with that information?  Instead, you just aggravate and stir the pot by posting shit like that for Burton to pretend like he is being impartial.

    Mr. Burton better keep laying low and hope to God that Scott *** does not win a race at Hawthorne because many of the BTW faithful will be watching for Burton to get down on all fours and kiss Scotty's ass, unless of course he backs out and is just another troll that shoots his mouth off, which is what I expect he'll do.

     Richard, you know damn well that your screen name and several of your posts should have been removed, period.  The only thing Burton and you bring to this forum is aggravation and troll posts to berate people you guys do not agree with or like.

      Burton keeps denying that he is the same Burton that intentionally drove a horse directly into the Maywood Park water truck for insurance purposes. When Dan *** raises that fact, Burton denies it and says let's move on and talk harness racing, yet he'll be the first one to stir the pot and break balls when it comes to TC, Dan or myself.  Grow up guys, or at least sign your names like the three of us do.  I know, I know, you want to remain private so nobody knows who you are.... and you want us to believe that your posts deserve merit.  Fat chance.  Go ahead and berate, laugh or do what makes you feel good because your writings have no validity. 

     And Mr. Burton, just make sure that you keep hoping and praying that Scotty doesn't win a race at Hawthorne because you will look like the fool that you are when he does.  Of course, you’ll probably never post on the forum again or post under another alias.   Didn't something like that happen to your buddy Tom Wendt?  He was a guy that argued with everyone on the forum and stirred the pot but when the poor guy got caught with his hand in the cookie jar, BINGO, he disappeared from barn to wire, never to be heard from again.  LOL Yeah, right.  I believe Tom isn't posting on here, no he would never defraud anyone, but I also believe that Burton and Richard Breth are your real names too.  LOL

     One more thing:  I hope the both of you enjoy Peter Galassi's race calls and acknowledgment of Las Vegas during the call and mention of the #1 harness site on the web, BARN TO WIRE. Don't worry Burton, everytime Scotty's horses run, there will be a special mention of Las Vegas and you having to kiss his ass should he win.  I will be forvvere greatful to Peter as he keeps us up to date with that situation.  Good day to the both of you and be sure to post something that will provoke matters further along.  I'm sure that you guys will.  After all, you two are the masters of provocation and stirring the pot, and the worse part is Janine allows it.

Joseph M. Dakuras

The problem with the post: it doesn't just extol the good qualities of Peter (of which there are plenty, and I'm glad he's able to announce harness still) -- it's the underlying BS behind the post.  Anyone who pays attention knows precisely what I'm getting at...

I second EW's remarks.

Joe,
Dan *** had the class to remove the remark about the truck.
Why do you keep bringing up this false accusation.
My comment was about what you put on the board.
Not about anything else.
Let's leave it at that.
I do want to talk about racing.
Not OJ or homo's or whatever nonsense you bring to the forum.

     Edward William:

     What exactly are you saying?  If you have a problem with the way TC praised Peter Glassi then I’ll leave you address that issue with him.  But if you are saying that Peter does not deserve recognition as one of the best Chicago has ever had, you are sadly mistaking, my friend. 

     I don't know why but it seems that there are a lot of jealous posters on this site whenever anyone mentions Las Vegas or this site.  Why?  Peter did something that I feel was different from all of the rest of the Chicago announcers...he gave Barntowire some press and the *** situation in Las Vegas a media plug.  What is wrong with that? 

     Given the current situation of harness racing and its demise in Illinois, anything that would promote fan interest should be accepted.  If we have someone as prominent as a track announcer willing to visit and post on barntowire, why is that so bad?  Even more compelling is that Peter is willing to speak about how Burton MUST kiss ***'s ass if he should win a race in Chicago and create a fun interest in the sport.  It seems as if you don't like the fact that Peter mentions Las Vegas or the fact that a poster might have put his foot in his mouth.  Personally, I think its great that Peter has taken the time to acknowledge barntowire, Las Vegas, and the *** versus Burton case while announcing a race at Hawthorne.  What other announcer is willing to have that kind of fun with the fans and generate fan interest other than Mike Bozich, who posts on here? 

    Lighten up.  I called TC last night and we spoke about how Peter is doing a great thing and all of the wonderful things he has done for Illinois harness racing.  It was Peter who gave me my very first interview and news story write-up.  Peter always went above and beyond his job duties as announcer when he was at Balmoral.  The guy has a great sense of humor and is making light of the btw situation between *** and Burton.  Let it go already and give Peter a big thank you for acknowledging this site and its posters.

Edward William:

     Call me stupid but I have no clue what you are referring to.  Unless you are upset that TC praised Peter for doing something no other announcer has ever done, (by mention of barntowire and *** vs. Burton) I am puzzled by what your reference is. 

     I apologize if you took it the wrong way and I am not putting a spin on anything.  If you like, feel free to IM me with your thoughts if they are of the personal nature and we can discuss it further.

     I am just elated that a track announcer mentioned barntowire and referred to Las Vegas and several of the BTW posters.  I think that it’s cool and very ballsy of Peter to do that.  You can put whatever spin on it that you want to but Peter made a fashion statement by his actions on that race the other night.  Name me anyone else that would do that over the PA during the call of a race?  If you consider the fact that I love Las Vegas, am a poster on BTW and friends with the *** family, you might understand why it was sort of a big deal what Peter did.  Just my opinion and if you would like to discuss it further, I'm sure TC will post exactly what he meant later today when he arrives back at his palace.  LOL, Have a good day.

CL ROGERS:

     Thank you for clearing that up.  I did re-read the post and whenever anyone talks badly about Peter or Scott, I just ignore it or post something to the contrary.  Peter Galassi and Scott Ehrlich have both been very good friends to my family and I so I don't take too kindly when they get berated on this site, although I pretty much don’t bother with that crap.    

     I’ve known TC for about two years now and he has always been more than a friend to me too.  I do believe that him and the group he used to sit with at Balmoral were upset at Scott for a long time.  I guess they did not like his calls or approve of some of the things Scott said.  Again, I stayed out of stuff like that because all of these guys are my friends and I don’t like to see people argue over stupid shit.  That is why I stopped posting as much as I once did because I am not going to argue with people that I have no clue who they are.  Hell, for all I know I might be arguing with someone that is upset because I beat them in a horse race when I was in the business.  I decided that it was best to kind of let people say what they want, then respond if I think it merits, and if I do not know who they are, let them troll along their merrily way.  LOL  

    Thanks again for clearing this up, as I was brain dead today.  Have a great afternoon.

Edward William:

     Call me stupid but I have no clue what you are referring to.  Unless you are upset that TC praised Peter for doing something no other announcer has ever done, (by mention of barntowire and *** vs. Burton) I am puzzled by what your reference is. 

     I apologize if you took it the wrong way and I am not putting a spin on anything.  If you like, feel free to IM me with your thoughts if they are of the personal nature and we can discuss it further.

     I am just elated that a track announcer mentioned barntowire and referred to Las Vegas and several of the BTW posters.  I think that it’s cool and very ballsy of Peter to do that.  You can put whatever spin on it that you want to but Peter made a fashion statement by his actions on that race the other night.  Name me anyone else that would do that over the PA during the call of a race?  If you consider the fact that I love Las Vegas, am a poster on BTW and friends with the *** family, you might understand why it was sort of a big deal what Peter did.  Just my opinion and if you would like to discuss it further, I'm sure TC will post exactly what he meant later today when he arrives back at his palace.  LOL, Have a good day.

Best Regards,

Joe, some announcers see the #1 forum in all harness racing for what it is : great - despite all the trolls like Breth and INGESTED OBTUSER.  Peter "gets" the forum, isn't a sissy who claims he never reads it (when in FACT other announcers read every chance they get then deny its existence or call it a "poison").  They don't make real announcers/ men like Peter Galassi or Tony Salvaro anymore.  If Tom Kelley wanted the job at Balmoral, he'd fall into the latter category.  We had a snivelling, backstabbing, wuss of an invertebrate goof who wouldn't shut up for a minute over 4 looooong years - refusing to offer peace because he knew more than us all (sound familiar Tom Wendt).  He was told umpteen times to give the patrons a break and refrain from explaining the ABCs of horse racing ad nauseum.  He refused, then tried to implicate his higher-ups as having fault in his deplorable obsessive-compulsive behavior.  Finally, even the cheapo Gestapo had had enough, and the iron boot was swung toward the keester of one of the most annoying, conniving, pests on terra firma.  In true milquetoast fashion, a positive "spin" was put on the exile, and we're all to believe the bunk emanating from the banished party.  GOOD RIDDANCE.  Within weeks of joining this forum years ago, I put my record and feelings on this mighty forum concerning the then announcer at the Gestapo mini-monopoly. This structure has never wavered, and will never waver.  Talk about the true definition of SUCKUP : two people on the planet that defend that ex-announcer and cancer on the morale of a standardbred racing plant.  We won't even go into thievery of archive videos, ludicrous demands of free food for him and his booth guests, improper relationships with members of the security detail, and abject failures as a son and father.  When you or I think of Chicago harness racing voices, we think of PHIL, GIL, TONY, and PETER : the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse.  No goof in their right mind would place any short time also-ran at that lofty plateau. FP, QCD, stga, VD, and Cra-ppo are more the speed of and commensurate with the (lack of) talent, timber of voice, and annoyance of dozens, rather than thousands.

  The bottom line is : GO PETER ! Enjoy the remainder of the meet, and continued best wishes in a true hotbed of harness and harness racing chat.  You successfully escaped the Gestapo, and were snapped up by a major player in racing tout suite, and spared having to relocate for the 5th time in 10 years.  Continued success and here's hoping for another 20 years in Chicagoland.   trotter  TC    P.S. Comparing Peter and the job he did at Balmoral Park to his successor is like comparing Lou Gehrig to Wally Pip, or more prudently, Barn To Wire to trackmausoleum.com. Oh, and I'm not speaking of Dom and the fine job he did and still does at INDY.  Dom, I'm looking forward to seeing you on opening w/e at INDY harness.
