Hall of Shame

I would like to start the Hall of Shame.  The Hall of Shame involves all forms of horse racing.

The first entrant to the Hall of Shame is MGM CEO Gary Barber who let his $30,000 claiming purchase go to the livestock sale where he was purchased by a rescue group for $100 at which time it was found out who had owned him by checking his tattoo.  Certainly a CEO of MGM could afford to take care of a thoroughbred that didn't make it to the races, but apparently he didn't care.  For that, Gary Barber is the first honoree of the Hall of Shame.  I would suggest if Mr. Barber can't afford to keep the horses he buys, he shouldn't bother owning then.

Lot of money - no class. Clearly the concept of responsible ownership in not one he is aware of or chooses to honor.
