This doesn't sound good (for Servis and Navarro)

In one sense it does sound good. Federal prosecutors seeking serious prison time for doping trainers could be a game changer for the sport.

I just posted about this. Apparently a lot more names are involved including harness trainers. Navarro, obviously, is a well known juicer and I'd love to see him banned from the sport asap and hopefully face criminal charges if they can prove this.

Maybe this is wishful thinking but I'm hoping that it is good, in the long run, for the racing industry. These fines and suspensions that the sport hands out do not deter these crooks. I've said this for years, they are race fixers and they should be prosecuted on a federal level. They are committing a felony every time they juice a horse.

This is so hard to believe they weren't just using hay oats and water. /sarcasm off

I agree it will be good for the game. I should have said doesn't sound good for the trainers named.

Anybody with an ounce of common sense knows PEDs have been being used liberally by some for a while now. I don't think it is any coincidence horses run best fresh these days and take more time between races.

Anyway, will be interesting to watch this all play out. I've always said drugging innocent animals would be a bigger black eye for the sport than anything including breakdowns.

I've especially enjoyed Servis' moral indignation when accused of cheating in the past.

You used Service and moral in the same sentence....heh heh heh!

High time the entire industry was put under a microscope. Anyone operating within the rules should not have any concerns.
