Part of Glenn’s reply was: “The Blood-Horse is not a disreputable publication. But the MOST reputable? It’s run by the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders of America. It has a tendency to be a house organ for the racing industry. That doesn’t make it ‘bad’ or ‘good,’ but that ownership statement is valuable information for readers to know when deciding whether they’re getting the best or the fullest coverage from The Blood-Horse.
“And, Ray Paulick is one of the more reputable turf journalists. … Although clearly you have an ax being sharpened with his name on it.
“But not your name. You’re ‘Anonymous.'”
Now, Who do you think “Anonymous” is?
Glenn, a journalist by trade, did some investigating and found this, in his words: “Although your post did come in at essentially the same time as my blog’s Visit No. 3,551 … a hit from Lexington, Ky., IP address 63.168.210.# (THE BLOOD-HORSE) … and a hit that came to me via paulickreport.com.
“So now I’m REALLY amused.”
And then, Glenn put the cherry on top. He said: “P.S. Rsrch skillz, I haz them.”
I relayed this amusing exchange to an enemy of the guy at the right who’s doing some business in Australia at the moment.
“Stay tuned,” he said.
“I will,” I said. “You’ll get the next installment as soon as Glenn writes it!”
