  1. Well, sure he did. You are surprised? Some real quality asshats at the track, ya know. Danny Bird is a well-known name, even up here in the frozen north. And let’s not forget what can happen to them if they DON’T go to slaughter. They can end up in a cage, legally, forever, owned by a psycho who believes they know better about horse-care.
