Lambo...whats the story with Marcus Vitali?

Turned in his trainers license last night at Gulfstream. Said he was headed to Maryland. Looks as if there is a lot to this breaking story...fill us in!

What do you mean by turning in his trainers license? Did he quit all together?

Based on instructions from his legal counsel if you don't have a trainers license you cant be charged with any infractions, so he turned the license in never to return to Florida to train.
"Vitali voluntarily relinquished his Florida license before Florida regulators could sanction him for seven alleged medication violations from October 2015 through January 2016. The Maryland Racing Commission has no reason to take action against him or deny him a license because his license has not been suspended in Florida"

Another INSANE loophole to allow a bum to continue operating elsewhere.

Here's something refreshing: How about MD enforce the common sense rule and ban his ass from entering MD?

With every passing day I come closer and closer to being an Uber driver rather than stay in this game. Lets see how Maryland handles it I guess before condemning everyone, though they do have an unpleasant history with guys banned from Florida if memory serves.

I wonder if the Congressional Horse Caucus members read the Paulick report?

Someone should send them a copy of this article.

I recently read that there are currently 40 TB tracks operating so, he still has 38 tracks to move to if this one catches on. There's always something which makes me want to find another "hobby". After all I've been saying probably for 40+ years, I can stop any time.

Most trainers would sooner get a 'beard' trainer than move to Maryland...

And what if your first passenger wants a ride to the track or OTB?

Nothing surprises me anymore. However, this latest "egg in the face" will blow up all over social media and perhaps serve as the catalyst towards universal reform. Call me the eternal optimist.

On a side note, brilliant legal move.

Thanks for the good news. Especially because Laurel Park is one of the tracks I like to play.
