When Ken and Matt are together on the air, my lights dim and I can feel the oxygen being sucked out of the room. My ears literally throb.

He started the show today by himself and of course, he throws out a pick 5 at GP. It’s always fun when his picks run up the track. TVG should throw in a caveat…’ Ken couldn’t blow his nose if it were loaded with dynamite’.

I treat his picks as late scratches.

Ken claims to be a handicapper, I heard him say it today. Someone forgot to tell Ken he's just on air to entertain.

Ken still doesn't know which end of the horse eats and which end craps. You would think he would have learned a few things through osmosis, but he hasn't.

Matt is knowledgeable and entertaining, and Perloff is opinionated and has an attitude...which is what I like to see in a horseplayer. Rudulph commits the worst mistake that an on-air personality can commit, IMO. He talks too much about something that he knows very little about. He should either learn more about the game...or talk less about it.

I'd love to see all these keyboard trash-talkers try, just for one day,
to do what TVG on-air talent are required to do in an afternoon shift.
They are obligated to put out cheap horizontal tickets on cheap
claiming races from 4 tracks without knowledge of late scratches or track
conditions/bias. Then, they go on air while getting instructions from
TV producers in their earpiece while trying to shift between 4 different tracks
every hour and give opines on seemingly endless exciting 5-horse fields.
Horseplayers shit on some TVG people for "chalky" tickets, or crap on
Ken because he's willing to take stabs when there's a vulnerable or
overwhelming favorite to try for a big score.
LIGHTEN UP folks, you'll live longer.

If you are not playing TVG tickets, who cares?

I use them as a guide only, as in when I construct my own tickets, they will include a horse I may have overlooked.

Stop being so PC and nice, Ken just needs to STFU.
