Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys

Count the DRF’s Jay Privman in the Mullins apologist camp after this schmaltzy "Urban Cowboy" editorial.

Privman, like others before him, paints the picture of Mullins as an outsider from the rural heart of America, trying to make it against the established elites of racing’s glitzy world. He struggled, couldn’t pay his bills, fought on, was knocked down again and was right back on his feet time and time again.

A great American story, you only have to be willing to disregard the fact that there are other struggling horsemen, people who wouldn’t bend their ethics, who refuse to cheat and who might ultimately fall by the wayside because f**king frauds such as Mullins cheat them out of their money. Doesn’t sound that heartwarming any more, does it?

"I don't care, as long as my clients are not bothered by it," Mullins said. "As long as they have faith in me, and they stick by me, that's all I really care about."
