    Trainer Robbins Adjusts to Life Without Tiznow

    He sits back at his desk, staring out the window and into his thoughts. "Right now, we're about as down as we've been in a long time. We don't have much here," the trainer remarks candidly. "Yeah, this is gonna be slow for a while." The stable hands carry out their duties quietly, though activity in a five-horse barn is decidedly minimal. The phone no longer rings off the hook. Reporters, once a constant, now chase stories elsewhere. There are very few hints, in fact, that just weeks ago, this was home to every trainer's dream.
