Nancy Hunt is a bearucratic robot without a soul, or genuine caring for the disabled.

I have worked with such notable people as Kentucky Derby trainer Bob Baffert and back in the 1970's was a personal friend of jockey William Shoemaker. Because of my disability and age I felt I could reenter the industry as a stable boy and groom. I go to the Independence Center each day to pick up information to stay current on every aspect of the industry. When others are doing the same thing in other industrys, Nancy discluded Me from printing
