Nothing beyond the initial suspension, which is under appeal. The ALJ hearing the appeal threw out the suspension because the NJRC did not present a case, but the ALJ's ruling is advisory only and not binding on the NJRC, which to date still has Ledford's license suspended.

Get off those dam pills Paul. Midol I heard works well and it is OTC plus cheaper.

Responding to an Oosting posting with a Ledford answer. Doh!

Has he driven races under the influence of alcohol or drugs? Are the drivers given a Breathalyzer nightly in Chicago?

Another Shining light on a ruined industry. Tell Burton the USTA is doing their job again allowing this multiple offender the opportunity to always make a living. Nothing better than having a drunk, abuser driving and people betting their hard earned money on him. Sounds like the kind of guy we all can trust let alone the fact he dopes horses.

I guess you don't realize that Maywood and Balmoral decide who can race at their tracks.
Not the USTA.

My point is the USTA needs to establish a set of rules for all tracks! Too much political BS allowing private or state owned track to allow different rules. What does the USTA and and HTA do besides collect paychecks?

 Exactly correct. Those ***hole at the USTA just issued a 10% raise in dues from last year to this year. WHAT IS THE JUSTIFICATION?Huh In the last 15 years they have raised the dues at least 3 times.  Someone or company should start another faction as basically a competitor. These guys have a monopoly on what they want to do and how much to charge. And of course what direction they want this business to gravitate toward. All aboard to crookedville.

The USTA has NO power to DO anything to anybody. Once a person has a USTA license, it's up to the individual state whether they want to license that person or not. Doesn't matter if that person has a valid USTA license or not. The USTA has NO effect on ANY state authority. NO state has to abide by ANY ruling the USTA has made. The individual STATE HAS the power. A lot of people that are racing right now do NOT have USTA licenses.

Please reread the post. I said they should ENFORCE one rule for all tracks whether they are state or privately owned. This would alleviate thieves being allowed to train or drive at certain tracks when others ban them ok?

The USTA has no more authority to do this than you do.
So,why don't YOU adopt rules for racing and enforce them?

USTA can't force tracks to do anything.  Do you not bet or race at tracks that don't honor other tracks' suspensions?

You need a federal law to cover this, or a national agreement between tracks. All USTA, or HTA, or any other group can do is make recommendations.  They can set rules for members, but again if any of those members don't like a rule they can quit.

Currently, the only thing regulating racing is state law and (sometimes) public opinion.

They keep records. THAT'S IT. And try to tell everyone how important they are. They are good at holding their meetings in very high class places too. On the members dime.
