    Money rules as the BC is an private commercial buisiness. Staying in Santa Anita means supporting the pro lasix exponents, it also means weakening the breed in the long run

      What state will support No Lasix? Take your time to answer. Ok. None

    Memo to race fans — make the board proud and purchase as many overpriced tickets for the BC as you can… cards are accepted, but syringes filled with Lasix are optional.
