Trainer Graham Motion Views Doping Indictments as Wake-Up Call to Horse Industry

“If this doesn’t wake us up as an industry, I don’t know what will, I’m afraid,” said Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Graham Motion. “It’s our own fault. We let it happen. This shows we are incapable of policing our own sport and that’s a sad situation.”

“I am pissed,” Terry Finley said. “When you think about all of the times we raced against those guys and lost, and the purse money, stakes wins, and stallion deals it cost us and so many other people. Everybody who does things the right way and got beat by these guys has the absolute right to be pissed.”
