I enjoy the freedom of the blog format. It allows me to do a bit more than I can when I’m limited to 300 words in the Form. I also get to throw in commentary, disclaimers and the like which are frowned upon in national publications. And rightly so, I might hastily add. So with commentary, disclaimers and hedging – since all the facts are decidedly NOT in; here is the latest at the Minnesota Racing Commission.
Additional information is emerging on the investigations being conducted by the state into two Commission officials, Assistant Executive Director Mary Manney and Chief State Veterinarian Dr. Lynn Hovda. Information is still sketchy and, for the most part, only one side of each story has been made public so it is difficult to come to a consensus on what exactly occurred in each incident.
