Worst beat of ALL TIME (Rainbow 6 at Gulfstream)

12 wins the finale at GP, one winning ticket, gets DQed on a VERY shaky call at best. I'm sorry, but that is just wrong and screams of conflict of interest.

I'm not much for conspiracy theories, but it's REALLY tough not to raise an eyebrow at that one.

Brutal Beat at Gulfstream

Race 12 today at Gulstream, the wins, apparently taking down the entire Rainbow 6 pool of more than $1,000,000. A few moments later, he gets taken down. $1.3 million carryover into tomorrow.

Bar none, worst beat ever. And that was a VERY borderline call.

The 13 was partially self-responsible for his own stretch troubles by lugging in. I'd have left the 12 as the winner.

If this happened to me, odds I'd be in jail tonight about 1 to 100.

Did not know about the Rainbow six implications until just now. I did think it was a bad dq and thought the second place horse lugged in when getting close to the winner in the early stretch, thus causing himself to check.

If I was the person that had the winner and got dq'd out of a million, I would never bet horses again. I doubt I would ever watch another race.

I was just saying the same thing to a buddy minutes ago. I'll be at Gulfstream live next weekend. The Stewards Room had better been padlocked. I'd have to hire 2 Attorneys, one to get me out of trouble, the other to sue for that Jackpot!

And handle will continue to shrink, and shrink, and shrink.

Terrible call.
GP is nothing but a joke of a track to begin with.
Now they are thieves!
