Unfiltered: Saratoga 2022 opens with a bit of controversy, sort of

July 12, 2022

Welcome to another episode of Unfiltered on Past The Wire TV

On this show our hosts Jonathan Stettin and Michael Wilson are joined by attorney Bill Gotimer. The three panel the opening of the Saratoga 2022 meet and a few issues of controversy that go along with it.

Get their takes on Juan Vazquez, a trainer who has pending animal cruelty issues involving the death of a racehorse, having two horses entered to run opening day at the premiere meet. They also discuss the Linda Rice case and how it differs from the Vazquez case in severity.

Our panel weighs in on the new chute, or Wilson chute as it is called and whether it is a good or even potentially dangerous idea.

A 105K purse maiden special weight race with 6 horses on opening day, what does that mean?

Last but not least they talk the new bar overlooking the walking ring in the paddock and any impact it could have on horses.

As always a lively no holds barred show. After it is Past The Wire and we are Horse Racing Uncensored, Unfiltered!
