I worked for DRF for 10 years. Lost my job, as did 99% of the staff, when the paper was bought and moved from Arizona to New York. I knew the people that wrote the articles, handicapped, and I was one of them.
Haven't purchased the paper in 5 years. I don't consider the non pps useless to the everyday player...consider that 'stuff' a luxury. I download my past performances from BRIS at a buck a card, and that's enough for me.
And I could tell you some stories about the 'knowledgable' handicappers...many of whom have no idea what a horse even looks like.
