The Way Forward

Steve Davidowitz on how to bring change to racing:

Sanan and others in his group must give up their efforts to work internally. They need instead to lose their own resistance to seeking out Federal assistance and shift their agenda towards sympathetic Congressman and Senators to launch a Federally inspired hearing to force each racing state to come together on a national level. The justification for this is the interstate nature of modern horseracing and the negative impact the declining American game is having on many sectors of our national economy.

I’m not so sure about involving the feds, but I am certain that Satish Sanan, or anyone else with ambitions to fix racing, must give up working in secrecy.
