I enjoyed Ray’s article on http://www.paulickreport.com re: Investigational Reporting. Investigative reporting is definitely beneficial to horse racing. Even when it contains half truths and ridiculous allegations it is focusing attention on a subject that needs a great deal of attention, preferably in the form of investigations conducted by unbiased people with considerable knowledge of the industry. Many investigations take place within horse racing as well as federal and state government, but how many of the investigators and decision makers are genuinely unbiased and have some form of relative expertise? Damn few and they usually get outvoted. Without proper and necessary changes, there will be no change in the depth or number of violations. One badly needed change in transparency is a record of how each steward and racing commissioner vote on issues that come before them. That information will separate the straw from the chaff. That is step one of a schedule of proposed solutions I have crafted for the many problems plaguing the industry today.
