...but why can't Kurt Hoover still be on it? Ain't quite outrageous???
Because this ain't Kindergarten, that's why.
TVG owns the broadcast rights to Holly Park now, and Hoover has a contract with HRTV (as well as one with Hollywood Park, and who knows how many other racing and broadcast organizations).
With everybody needing 17 or 18 jobs in racing just to cobble together one shabby existence, I'm only surprised when these conflicts of interest don't happen more often.
