Horse race cancelled by horses a$$…

”THE STARTER CALLS THE HORSES!”  A
familiar cry at race tracks around the province before the start of
the dash.  At least it was.  Thanks to David ‘horse’s rectum’ Alward
that call to the starting gate may soon be silenced.  The tories have
decided not to fund the Atlantic Sire Stakes this year, causing one
important race to be cancelled already, and jeoporadizing the whole
sport in the process.

”THE HORSES ARE CHARGING DOWN THE
BACKSTRETCH!”  One hundred thousand dollars.  That’s it.  A fraction
of the money that Premier Alward is paying his butt kissing cronies that travelled on the bus with him.  Actually, one hundred thousand dollars wouldn’t pay one of their salaries.  But taking it away from the tracks will cause many to suffer.  The horsmen, grooms, track employees, to name a few.  Never mind the farmers that supplement their income by supplying feed and other essentials for the animals.

”NOW THEY’RE PASSING THE THREE QUARTER
POLE!”  Speaking of rats, it wasn’t too long ago that Premier
wannabe Mike Murphy was proclaiming that he was going to save the sport when he was a minister in Shawn Graham’s government.  Moncton’s new casino was supposed to be a joint venture with a race track, which would’ve injected much needed cash into the industry.  I’ve been to the casino Mike, but I still haven’t figured out where the
horses are supposed to race.  Up and down Mountain Road perhaps?

”HERE THEY COME DOWN THE STRETCH TO
THE FINISH!”  It must be nice to have the power to be able to make
your friends rich and starve out a bunch of strangers at the same
time.  I’m really getting sick of politics in this province.  I’ve
been involved in harness racing and in agriculture.  The two go hand
in hand, and the people who make their living from both are some of
the nicest folks around.  But I guess when you’re in government, it
doesn’t matter who’s business you ruin as long as you and your
friends can line your pockets.  Premier Alward may be thoughtless
when it comes to ordinary folks, but at least he was nice enough to
pose for this picture…
