Fairmount Park is under investigation by the Illinois racing board over a race that took place Tuesday.

The contest featured 70-year-old jockey Robert "Cowboy" Jones who was trying to set records as the oldest jockey to win a race and as the only jockey to win a race in seven decades.

Although Jones finished in second place, state horse racing regulators want to know if competing jockeys tried to conspire to let Jones win.

"The officials work for the State of Illinois so they are completely independent," Fairmount Park officials said in a written statement about the investigation. "They administer the races all over the state.

The jockeys being questioned are independent contractors. They have nothing to do with Fairmount Park. It would be inappropriate for us to comment during an ongoing inquiry by state racing officials."

 

      Cardinals broadcaster Mike Shannon will hold his first-ever “Twittercast,” taking over @Cardinals for Wednesday night’s game against the Pirates. 

     “While his voice is synonymous with Cardinals baseball, this will be Mike’s social media debut,” said Bill DeWitt III, President of the Cardinals. “This should be a lot of fun as Mike makes the transition from behind the microphone to behind the computer or smart phone for one night to tell the story of the game in 140 characters or less.” 

     During Wednesday’s game versus the Pirates – which is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. in Pittsburgh at PNC Park – Shannon will step away from his play-by-play seat on the Cardinals Radio Network and into Mike Shannon’s Grill in Edwardsville, IL, where he will host the @Cardinals Twitter Takeover. 

      Throughout the game, Shannon will comment on game action, share personal anecdotes, tweet answers to fan questions and more on @Cardinals under the hashtag #MikeShannon. 

      This marks the first time that the Cardinals Twitter account will be taken over by a personality. The first @Cardinals Twitter Takeover occurred earlier this season when fan retweets told the story of the game during the club’s annual Social Media Night at the Ballpark.              Fans are encouraged to join the conversation by submitting their questions for Mike on Twitter by using the hashtag #MikeShannon. 

Shannon has manned the Cardinals broadcast booth since 1972.

Yet another smash and grab, this time at an iconic midtown pawn shop.

Someone backed a Dodge Dakota pick-up truck through the front of  Sam Light Loans at the corner of Olive and Jefferson.  When police arrived the truck was still running with the wheels spinning around 4:30 this morning.

Police tell Fox 2 news the truck was stolen in north city and used in the smash and grab. No suspects are in custody.

The owner is still trying to determine what, if anything, was taken. Several surveillance cameras are in place and police will be checking those to identify any suspects.
