Suggesting that just because he invested his own funds he should be given a pass is a questionable leg to stand on here. Wunderlich is a community facility and under this management strayed away from a community barn with one competitive barn occupying more than half of the stalls. I hope the new management maintains the true spirit of the public park that it is and doesn't "sell out" to any one barn. The trails are phenomenal and the stalls should be reserved for those who also truly enjoy them. The demand is there, I hope adherence to the spirit of the effort is kept.
