I think he sucks. Hes obnixious and very unprofessional.
He doesn't need to laugh every time a 1-5 is about to lose. Its not sour grapes because I don't bet the 1-5. Its jut wrong.

Clubhouse:  Date and race, please.  Extraordinary claims REQUIRE extraordinary evidence.  Surprise to an odds-on breaking stride, "OHHH!", is completely different and well within the realm of professionalism, and while I may think to myself during a race "I hope this 1-5 gets beat," audibly cheering AGAINST said horse is not something I would do.

I think Ur speaking about the dude at Pocono....please clarify.

The dude at Pocono is just flat out the worst and it makes me sick when he handicapps while the race is on. Howard Oil does that garbage too.
The guy at Chester is just unprofessional in my opinion.

I will go back and look at the charts and find the dates and the races I am referring to.
