UPDATE: John Velazquez and John Veitch were each charged with multiple violations for their hand in the Life At Ten controversy during last year's Breeders' Cup by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.

More to come…
When I learned that the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission was going to issue its long awaited reported on the Life At Ten incident at the 2010 Breeders' Cup, I sent an email to the KHRC, encouraging them to offer an audio webcast of their March 10 meeting. The California Horse Racing Board does this routinely, giving people all around the country an opportunity to listen in as major issues are discussed and debated, as well as the ongoing “Gong Show” involving some of the state's more entertaining racing participants who like to hear the sound of their own voice during public comment periods.
Well, I didn't get a response to that suggestion. No surprise there. The KHRC is not as transparent or, frankly, as competent as some other state racing commissions.
Instead of interested parties having a chance to listen to the discussions and questions about the report (at least when the KHRC is not locked behind closed doors in Executive Session), I'll do my best to satisfy their curiosity by live blogging this afternoon's meeting
If you can't attend the meeting (I anticipate standing room only at the U.S. Dressage Federation builiding in the Kentucky Horse Park), please check back shortly after 1:30 p.m. and feel free to interact with Ray Paulick and Brad Cummings in the live blog below. If there is the opportunity to pose questions to the commission, we may even ask one of yours!
