Would you want some bureaucrat who has no idea about the horse racing industry overseeing it? I think not. This is why you will find the stewards at many tracks are former jockeys. Your article does the best to imply there is some wrongdoing going on when the bonus money you imply may be distributed in some underhanded manner cannot be awarded to them unless their horses win it.
Even your article pointed out that not all of the commissioners are owners. Don’t you trust them to be a counterbalance to your invented wrongdoing? To me, this is nothing more than an attempt to sell newspapers at someone else’s expense.
What this is really about is saving Pimlico. If you want to save Pimlico, disarm the neighborhood surrounding it!
