I'm assuming that was a rhetorical question. But, seriously, NYRA, which was itself under investigation at the time the case against the two was originally filed, was awfully quick to throw its two loyal employees overboard. Shame on them (NYRA, that is).

Do jocks ride overweight? Sure. Always have, always will. Why not fix the scale of weights and, at least, have riders at something like the norms in Europe? Oh yeah, I forgot, we can't look elsewhere for models. If we adopted European rules on weights, we'd have to look at their rules on drugs, too.
