That had to be one of the worst "hot takes" possible from an on-air horse racing talent with all that is swirling around with the sport at this time of year when it's in general public view. Easily, and probably rightfully, interpreted as condoning cheating, accepting horse deaths, etc. Which have all made the mainstream news in the past week.

But (i) it's Twitter, for crying out loud, the home of "oops" takes and (ii) he apologized for the hot take.

Not a fan of Rudulph, TVG, their race coverage, their pushing of multi-race wagers into the maw of CRW crews, etc. - but the guy screwed up and realized he screwed up. Apologized. What else is there to do?

I see him more as being a realist.

I like realists.

Laughable. And a lie.

Fair enough. He did preface it with:

Horse racing needs to stop pretending and just be what it is.

This sport seems intent on forcing all of us to be "realists". I just wish there were some way to push back against the reality of hidden drugging, etc. Cue John Lennon and "Imagine" . . .

he only apologized because he was told to


IMO he knew the furor his tweet would cause and if it was still the TVG days heíd have gotten away with it
Just as heís done in the past

FANDUEL is very aware of their image and with todays cancel culture thatís why they made him apologize

It's weird how you act as someone in possession of ALL the facts...that's impossible.

BTW, did you see the Bloodhorse article I posted yesterday?

http://www.paceadvantage.com/forum/s...9&postcount=60

Thoughts? (feel free to post them in that thread)

How do you have the facts on Rudolph and FanDuel's reaction? AND TVG'S HYPOTHETICAL REACTION!

It's like YOU WERE THERE!

Something tells me you'll commit "message board suicide" well before that week arrives.

My dear Mr Advantage
You have to be the worst moderator in the history of such forums.
Your lack of impartiality is laughable
Whenever you feel the need to insult me you do if I return the insult you delete my reply and then give me an infraction

As Iíve said many times today just keep on being you

I feel sorry that your life is so meaningless

My only problem with Rudolphís tweet is its incoherence. Par for the racing media course.

I used ONE word that YOU deemed political
As I said before youíre the worst moderator of all time
Just today alone you insulted me twice yet you get offended if I ďpunch backĒ
You are the judge and jury, not the way itís supposed to be
