Janney Responds To Pennsylvania Commissioner: ‘There Were Indeed Regulators Asleep On The Job’

Stuart S. Janney III, chairman of The Jockey Club, has responded to a letter from Russell C. Redding – Pennsylvania's Secretary of Agriculture and chairman of the Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission – in which Redding said Janney's critical remarks at the Jockey Club Round Table in August spread “misinformation” and were “irresponsible.”

“I stand by them and I deny that I spread misinformation,” Janney said in his Oct. 17 letter to Redding.

Four suspended Parx trainers denied stay

The Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission has denied a request for a stay for four trainers based at Parx near Philadelphia who were suspended this week for failing to comply with a subpoena, according to the attorney representing the trainers.

Alan Pincus, the attorney, said the commission denied the motion on Thursday while granting a request that the trainers receive a hearing on the matter, although a hearing date has not yet been scheduled. In the meantime, the trainers, two of whom are in the top 10 by wins at Parx this year, have been denied access to Parx and cannot enter any horses.

State Officials Reviewing Horse Ambulance Delay At Penn National
The Pennsylvania State Horse Racing Commission said it is reviewing a Nov. 17 incident at Penn National racetrack in Grantville, Pa., in which it took a reported eight minutes for the horse ambulance to arrive so that a stricken horse could be treated and, ultimately, euthanized.

Aspic, a 6-year-old mare bred, owned and trained by Candice M. Smith and ridden by Jacqueline Davis, suffered a catastrophic injury and fell while racing in third position in the six-furlong allowance race for registered Pennsylvania-breds. A second horse, Hygh Life, lost her rider, Kaylia Albright, trying to avoid the fallen horse but was not apparently injured. Neither rider suffered major injuries although Davis suffered contusions in the leg and collarbone area and was sidelined for 10 days.

Footnotes in the originally published race chart from Equibase, the Thoroughbred industry's official database, stated: “Aspic chased the pace on the outside, broke down at the three-eighths pole and was euthanized after the ambulance took about eight minutes to arrive.”

It's a little harder to sweep it under the rug when you have it in the chart, however briefly.

Has anyone seen the articles from Paulick about Mario Rafael Rodriguez not giving his horses immediate veterinary care? One of his horses, Silent Ruler was found in distress with a fractured leg. Now they rescued another horse from
his barn. This POS needs to have his license revoked and not come near a racetrack again.

And let's not forget that "...a horse was found dead in its stall in the Rodriguez shedrow Dec. 15 after it had been treated for colic earlier in the day."
That sounds like the poor horse was left to die in pain when that 'earlier' treatment didn't fix it.
The SOB needs to have his ankle broken with a baseball bat and then have his ass tossed out of the track. And have his license permanently revoked. :evil:

I really never understand this sentiment? It this awful? Yes.
Is wishing ill on other people awful? Yes.

Always give props to Paulick who actually takes it to some of the shit in racing and generally does not back down.

I don't 'wish ill' on other people very often. I'm pretty selective about whom I choose to curse.
This asshole qualifies, IMHO. :P

Here’s the original article about Silent Ruler. Trainer originally only given a 45 day suspension and a $500 fine, but then recently upped the suspension to a year. Hopefully he’ll be gone for good now since another horse needed emergency care and he didn’t provide the necessary care for the poor horse.

As if public shaming is going to move the Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission to action.
Bottom line: They don't care.

James L Gagliano‏ @jamesgagliano
Wrote letter to PA Racing Comm almost 2 mos. ago (attached). After first receiving a nonsensical letter from a PA state attorney, I was assured I would receive a response. Still waiting for a formal response. Will it ever come?

So glad to read this! Hopefully other tracks follow suit and don’t let him on their properties.

This horse couldn't catch a break...damn.

Bryan Langlois, DVM @Animalsheltrdoc
It is with shock & heartbreak that I tweet this. "Silent Ruler", who so many rallied behind w/ donations & support to @PARR_OTTB after undergoing surgery to save his life after being neglected in his stall for weeks, was euthanized this morning after a freak paddock accident...
