I see that TVG announcer Ron Ellis is back at work, does he have any horses?
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

I had read that he has submitted a request for stalls at Santa Anita, so he's apparently trying to rebuild his stable. I hope his clients flock back to him, and I love seeing him back on a TVG desk at the track.

Quarter Horse jockey Cesar Gomez is one of two individuals found dead at the site of a plane crash in Oklahoma, reports stallionesearch.com. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol found the crash site at 7 a.m. on Monday, and both passengers were pronounced dead at the scene.

According to FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford, the plane crashed at about 10 p.m. on Sunday. It had requested permission to land at El Reno due to inclement weather, according to news9.com. It was reported missing after both radio and radar contact were lost; the National Transportation Safety Board will be in charge of the investigation.

Gomez began his professional riding career in 2014, and his best year was in 2015 working for trainer Kasey Willis. He piloted One Fabulous Eagle to a second-place finish in Quarter Horse racing's richest race, the $3 million All American Futurity, and won the All American Gold Cup aboard Rock You.

The bad news just won't stop. :(
Pat Smullen out for foreseeable future after discovery of a tumour
Pat Smullen is facing a long spell on the sidelines after medical tests carried out in recent days on the nine-time Irish champion jockey revealed his illness is more serious than first thought.
Smullen, 40, missed his rides at Dundalk on Friday and on the opening day of the turf season at Naas on Sunday.
In a statement issued to the Racing Post on Wednesday, Smullen said: "Most people will have been aware that I have been in hospital in recent days undergoing tests.
"I was showing some of the symptoms associated with a gallstone problem but it was discovered that the problem was more serious.
"A tumour was discovered and consequently I won't be riding for the foreseeable future. It's a new challenge for me and it's one I am fully focused on overcoming.

I hope I'm wrong but...isn't cancer of the gall bladder really bad? :shock:

It didn't take Ron Ellis long to get back in the game. His Lightning Dove just won the down-the-hill 7th at Santa Anita.
Welcome back, Ron. :D
