Shallen Singh, 29, said a patron attempted to pickpocket his friend’s cellphone and he ended up being beaten bloody.
He subsequently shared photographs of his injuries on Facebook.
“I accompanied my friends to the races. We had a few drinks and were enjoying the day’s activities. At around 7pm, a friend stood in the line to take a bet. He realised the person standing behind him had tried to steal his cellphone from his pants pocket and punched him,” claimed Singh.
He said the security guards then attacked his friend. When the man’s wife tried to intervene, Singh claimed she was placed in a choke hold.
