Former chairman and St. Croix representative Jay Watson promised he would have a response to his dismissal last week from the Virgin Islands Horse Racing Commission.

That response came Wednesday in the form of a four-page letter to Gov. Albert Bryan Jr. — copied to other members of the Horse Racing Commission — claiming Bryan took “an arbitrary and myopic perspective” in removing him from the commission, and voicing it as a conflict between St. Croix and St. Thomas factions.
