Default Grunder

Love him but "Down to the Wire" should NOT be called with 1/16th left. A horse in the Lead "Coming Down to the Wire" should not lose by 2 lengths...

I get that he’s nice but when your job is to describe a race, a handful (or more) of mistakes a day is pretty bad. Maybe Tampa can give him some sort of job where he mingles with bettors and fans but is far, far away from announcing.

He’s done enough.
