He has fired his turf writer 71 days before the Saratoga meet for expressing disappointment over our lacking Triple Crown coverage.
The Carryover, however, lives on.
*It has just come to my attention that this post has been linked up to The Paulick Report, so in the spirit of the game, I will add more to it.
So, yes, been fired without a warning for comments I made here (retracted within two hours of the initial post) that expressed my disappointment that a paper who prides itself on its racing coverage would squash the Triple Crown. This I found egregious and irresponsible.
I worked there for 20 months and was part of an awarding winning Travers Coverage section. My 20 months got my foot in the horse racing door and for that I will be grateful. Beyond that, I will say no more.
Thanks to those who read my articles through the paper, but The Carryover lives on and I will keep up my column here and even beef up the blog even more so.
In closing, I say, stay tuned, this is just the beginning.
