Ken, I suppose you are right about putting a group together to hit a large jackpot like this but one big thing. One of the groups members was Scott E. (the track announcer and publicity director) and I believe that makes it look like it was fixed or rigged. If they hit the bet honestly I wish them well but when Scott is involved, it makes it look very bad. I'm not saying he did or didn't do anything, it just looks bad. Now everyone knows that Edward could not have picked all of those horses himself without the help of Scott, is that cheating, Maybe? You cannot have someone like an announcer or publicity director forming a group to steal other patrons money. I just talked with Chris Schick and he is going to look into it and he also advise me to call the California orse Racing Board on monday morning, which I will. I want to say that I don't think these guys did anything wrong, maybe they just bend the rules some by using Scott and his information. This is the kind of stuff we californians have been fighting all along and here comes something that looks very suspicious. Very unfortunate, isn't it?
As I said before, he was not a part of the initial buying of the ticket. I don't know if shares were sold, but I am CERTAIN that he or his "information" had ZERO to do with the building of the ticket.
Also, I'm a little offended that you think that me and my friends couldn't hit it without help. I assume that I come off as well-informed and maybe even sort of intelligent on here, but I guess not!
Cal Fan, dig in another yard for dirt, because there isn't any here, my friend.
