The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence — Meet the red headed step kids. From this week’s PLAYBOOK Football Newsletter: Red-headed stepchildren tend to give it their all in college football.

The smaller schools residing in states where Power Five conference teams live usually get the scraps from these teams during the recruiting battles. These players play with a chip on their shoulder in these games after being shunned.

Finally, the “Trivia Teaser” in this week’s newsletter reminds us the Florida Atlantic head coach Willie Taggart is 6-0-1 ATS in his career when taking 25 or more points. Check the line.
