Trainer/owner Rusty Smith, utterly ignoring pleas for mercy (mostly from many of you here at HW), forced 14-year-old Eighty Eight back onto the track Sunday at Lethbridge. It was race 157 for Eighty Eight. 157. Although the outcome matters not a whit, I will tell you that this poor animal finished last, just as he did in race 156. But fret not, folks, for Smith would never do anything to place his “beloved family member” in harm’s way. Vile – across the board.
