Bernie Houghton is the one racetrack denizen who gets all his information straight from the horse's mouth.He doesn't mind taking lip from the thoroughbreds who compete at the Maryland tracks; it's all in a day's work.As the identifier (or lip man, in track parlance), Houghton has a vital, yet thankless, task at Laurel Park and Pimlico -- making certain that the right horses are running in the right races.
