Police Swoop on Stables
After repeated accusations of race-fixing, Shanghai police today raided the stables of newly crowned celebrity thoroughbred Three-Legged Tom. Extensive interviews were carried out with stable staff, but police were not forthcoming with the results of those interviews.


Oooooh, I just love scandals :-D

interesting...! i felt unfortunate that I wasn't in Shanghai when Three-Legged Tom struck gold! I usually bet on him whenever I'm in town!

Did anyone actually see when he won the race? I'm in Shanghai now, but I was never able to see his win in recent results. Did anyone have any money on him when he won? Congrats if you did :)

After that came out I was in Shanghai and I looked at the recent wins and I didn't see any where Three-Legged Tom came in first place :(

So now the rider is missing... perhaps it has something to do with the battery boardwalk?

"'Little Rocky' Goes Missing
Famous international Jockey 'Little Rocky' O'Shaunessy, rider of Three-Legged Tom in the recent Shanghai Invitational, has disappeared. Said to be assisting police with their ongoing race-fixing investigation, 'Little Rocky' was reported missing by self-proclaimed philanthropist Kong Xian-Nu. "'Little Rocky' will be a great loss to the racing community. We mourn his ... I mean we pray for his safe return," Xian-Na stated to the Press."

This is all so strange...It doesn't even seem that Tom won a race. I hope it does have to do with Battery Boardwalk, or something new being added to Sleuth.

SHAME! Three-Legged Tom Disqualified
Shanghai Track Officials today acknowledged that, amidst speculation of race-fixing, they would strip the 'Shanghai Invitational' Title from Three-Legged Tom. His owners would be required to pay all winnings back. 'Whilst these allegation may never be substantiated,' a pale track official reported, 'we believe there is enough doubt in the result to warrant this course of action."

Ah, the plot thickens! :-)

Ticket Holders Riot
A small riot of sorts was witnessed outside of the offices of the Shanghai Racing Track this morning as angry patrons demanded their betting slips be honored. Whilst those who had bet heavily on recently disgraced Three-Legged Tom were nowhere to be seen, many who had placed their money on second place getter 'Naked Joe' demanded full payment. Many claimed they had destroyed their 'winning' ticket after the race and hoped the Shanghai Track officials would take them at their word...


Do I smell another lottery in the works?
