Going in Circles Big Monday with Barry Spears presented by Pleasant Acres Farm and the GIC Digest

On tonight’s Big Monday show Barry and I discuss the baffling inability of tracks when it comes to accurate timing of the races as we found out that the fractions for the Breeders Cup Distaff and Classic were not correct. That led into a discussion about how issues often don’t get solved in racing because no one is willing to take on a problem if they perceive that it’s someone else’s fault or responsibility. Ponder an article written recently that bizarrely compares Spend a Buck’s decision to skip the Preakness to run for a huge bonus with the current Baffert Derby dilemma. We also talk about Jason Beem’s podcast this week where he interviews the controversial ITP who shares his valuable wagering wisdom (check it out on any of the major platforms) and we talk about evolving as a player and learning from your mistakes. Of course regulation is a hot topic in racing and we do bring up some of the areas HISA might need to consider and some things that do need to be addressed in addition to their announcement last week as we wait to see what the financial implications will be. We also extended the ‘Name the GP Tapeta finishline cone’ contest for another week, get your entries in at
