Essays, Not Articles

(TUE) June 19th, 2018

2:31 p.m. Horse race news is reporting that Satono Diamond is coming back to its original shape. Satono Diamond who once beat Kitasan Black in Arima Kinen 2016, hasn't won a race after his big loss in the Arc last year. Rumor was out that the horse has already peaked out on its performance. But the arriving news says he is getting back to his prime.

I deduced that this must be on a physical basis, even if the information was true. It means, so far the horse may be physically performing well in his training. There hasn't been any actual proof in the article that points out the horse's condition was back into its prime. That's why I can't trust such information. Didn't these writers learn to include specific facts into their articles? Without observative and specific proof, it's just an essay not an article. What's annoying is that these writers get paid for such essays.
