Tired of trying to enjoy the horses in the paddock and having Hipster Dufusses blow cigar smoke in their face

Los Alamitos killed their momentum (an old Santa Anita excuse)

Protest over Arrogate getting 126 pounds for the San Diego “Handicap”

DRF raised their prices again

Failure to publicize that 1981 Kentucky Derby winner Gato Del Sol was running in the 7th race (at least according to Trevor)
