This is so beautifully written; You bought a horse and took him to a farm moved me. Bless You.

@sandyfprieto

Good Work here, particularly this, which is being missed by many with good intentions. Folks wanting racing to end aren't getting messages that matter to them. Thanks.

Erin Thompson @Pan_Zareta

@jonathanstettin BEST ARTICLE I'VE READ ON THIS MATTER!!!

Sergio Santos @SergioS29

@pastthewire As always brilliantly written and perfectly toned observations written by @jonathanstettin everyone in the industry needs to read this and view it as a call to action.

Christopher Fronczek @Christo17607782

"Nice work and well said Jon."

Ryan McCarthy @RMcCarthy1

Great article and you are absolutely right. However your piece is sensible and logical- something that doesn't register with the opposition (who rely on emotion and "siege tactics")

@thescutter The Scutter Magazine

One of the best articles on the state of emergency of our industry. Hits the nail on the head. If we want to save racing we must band together and actively work to save it. If we want the industry to die...we can continue with what we're doing.

Michael Wilson @michaelsrwilson

@jonathanstettin  Morning Jonathan, I just read your Piece on its not a Santa Anita thing IT WAS OUTSTANDING. I have been playing horses for 42 yrs since my father 1st brought me to Washington Park. I could not agree with you more. There must be 1 governing board and a commissioner.

Big Boy R @vatsanman

Great article by @Pastthewire

David Mussad @DavidMussad

@Jonathanstettin Very well written article. The sport will be missed by many...The time is now
