Fox Hill Farm | Churchill's lack of respect for a legend of racing

foxhillfarmstable.com

Sadly, not all is sunshine and lollipops at Churchill Downs this week. Along with the issues at the Fair Grounds, the recent takout hike at Churchill, and now issues with treatment of legendary jockey Ron Turcotte, CDN is putting on a clinic of bad PR. I'm not sure if Churchill Downs is just incredibly tone deaf, ignorant, or just plain doesn't care (probably the most likely cause), but this incident doesn't help their already suspect (at best) image with a lot of racing fans.
