What is it that causes the so called regulators of the California Horse Racing Board and the New York Gaming Commission to be so lax in their punishments? Can they not see past the plight of the violator? The rulings made by these agencies give no thought whatsoever to the plight of the many stakeholders deserving justice in these matters. To make things worse the stakeholders don’t even bother to complain. What is wrong with this scenario? Organizational support will not be forthcoming from the “Trainers’ Benevolent and Protective Association” because it is rife with a good old boys network and corruption. A few stand up and be counted type individuals need to speak out on these matters. Unfortunately they are few and far between and as long as the powers that be practice appeasement instead of regulation the status quo will not change.
