What a laugh!!!!! He and his wife and business partners in the salabinin ranch are a bunch of social climbing wannabes, who talk and walk #$%^^ to anyone who will listen. Usually without any merit to back up their outrageous claims. They are a joke to the Quarterhorse industry. Not to mention that the Salaone family the other half of the ranch's wife is a horribile rider. As for the "large" in reference to the size of their ranch is a laugh. Modest would have been better. However, the Salaone family has been in the industry for many years. Bought and paid for every accalade their son won while a youth. But it was their son and his nasty wife who went into this business endeavor, I bet you, against his fathers wishes. Sad thing is, the son has been trying to one up his father for years. TRAGIC!!!!!!

If he likes a good ride, 45 years in prison might suit him.

One would have thought if you knew the family so well, you would at least have known how to spell their name...

truth, the only information you are sharing is far from the truth. Maybe add "m-i-s" infront of your name next time. You should probably learn how to spell names correctly next time you want to degrade someone who you probably envy anyways. You lost all credibility and actually look like the "social climbing wannabe" yourself. And, the only "TRAGIC" thing is, is the fact that one of their horses probably costs more than, well, everything you own.

First of all...our last name is spelled SALOME, not Salaone, so I see you are not very bright, nor do you know my family at all.. And your comments are as far from the truth as can be...we have worked our "*****" off for everything we have and if you knew us as well as you say you do, you would know that. And what does the Salome Family have to do with this? Are you so pathetic and cowardly that you have to attack my family through an article that has nothing to do with us? TRUTH is YOU are the "WANNABE" or shall I say the "NEVER WILL BE". As for his Youth accomplishments and her riding, you must be a sore looser too!! Buy a Better Horse. BTW my name is Kelli Salome Diaz,Todd's sister, whats yours?

Oh Joy! Schools out. The kids are home. My
horsie is "purtier" and "more expensive" than your
horsie..neener neener neener. I hear your mother
calling.

Everyone can have great horses I suppose..if
we all embezzled money to pay for them.
What a loser to steal from friends who trusted him. Mark Cherubino is who you should be labeling
pathetic and cowardly..not a poster that you
disagree with.

I hope the court awards everything this guy
owns to the victims. Including..the fridge,
the beer, and the couch.

Really? Just because you would have to embezzle to pay for "great horses" does not mean others have to.
Can I have the names of some of your family members so I can take to a public forum and insult them? Get off KKD's back..fool!

RealTruth.. you are delusional. You and your buddies
all sound the same. All of your responses come
down to "great horses" or my horsie is worth more
than your horsie. How old are you?
You need to go post on a site where you can brag
about your 4-H ribbons and tell everyone how
much your little horsie is worth.

This forum is about Mark Cherubino embezzling
money. Any comments about that? Yes, I do
consider people who steal from others ...a
big loser. Most people with common sense would
agree.

If you know them so well, then you would also know that they are very giving of their time and funds to the community, friends and family that they love and hold dear. They are some of the best folks we have ever known and work very hard for what they have. The Salome family feeds several hundred people every holiday season, taking time away from each other for people that are less fortunate; they have hosted events for foster kids and made them feel like a member of their family for a day giving them a meal and letting them ride their horses; are active members of the community in which they live and they donate countless hours of time to Ohio Quarter Horse Association and being an integral part of the largest horse show in the world and rarely get thanked for it...and the list goes on. They are charitable to a fault and both can ride and are great horseman in their own right! It sounds like you have a case of sour grapes and the green eyed monster within ~ that is your own issue to deal with and not on a public forum. And please answer mine and everyone else's question...WHAT do they have to do with this situation that the article is speaking about? They are upstanding and law abiding citizens. What part of that don't you understand?!?!?!

I'll tell you exactly what part I don't understand.
I have never heard of the Salome family! In
the world of Quarter Horses people may know of them.
Outside your horse world and in the real world most of us probably don't care one way or another who they are.

I only saw one post on this board mentioning
the salome family. Why don't you reply privately
to the person that you have an issue with?
This forum is about Mark Cherubino..It's not
titled the Salome family.

Now, now. Don't get your panties in a bunch. I never mentioned anything about comparing "horsie prices." I was stating a fact that some familes WORK hard to raise and show horses and dont have to embezzle to fund their hobby. I don't show nor do I own a horse, I just happen to have a clue about the subject, unlike yourself.
Ask yourself this, what is something you are good at? Ah, I know, probably sitting on your couch all day watching tv and receiving federal assistance.(You would be the Mark Cherubini.. taking advantage of others) I however, go to school and work. I then come home and can occasionally find time to sit on my couch and watch tv.(I would be supporting my tv watching "hobby" myself, while you take advantage others. Not everyone would be the "you" in this situation like not everyone who owns horses embezzles like Mark)Does that dumb it down enough for you?
And most people with "common sense" would spell the man's name right.
Get over yourself, he made a mistake and will face the consequences. He can't be perfect like you and sit around all day making sure the couch doesn't float away.

I responded publicly not privately because the pathetic coward who calls himself/herself "truth" had no right to insult my family. I certainly hope you are the kind of person that would defend someone in your family if they were attacked publicly, especially when they had nothing to do with this nor were they even mentioned in the article. And it absolutely has nothing to do with horses...The pathetic coward "truth" is the one that brought it up. Everyone has a passion, ours just happens to be horses..So What!!

KKD You are absolutely right, I have no right to insult anyone. I am not trying to insult your family, I happen to think that your dad is actually of great merit in the business. No, I am not jealous, I have known your brother for many years. My issue is with him. I used to board a couple of horses in your dads barn when your brother was running things. We actually went to a few shows through mutual friends a time or 2. I was very green then and hapened to luck out and have a very nice horse, of course we did good, not great because of lack of experience and he was a baby. I had alot of fun but your brother made things so unbearable at times it became hard to separate the good in him from the anger. I also witnessed and heard about many things, as I have friends in newark, who went to school with your brother. I guess what I am trying to say is that I could never understand how or why your brother would get mixed up with this fool, when your dad has been a successful business man. I am not a coward but choose to remain annoymus so as not to appear like a wannabe. Name droping in the industry. I believe that your family is very well respected. I see you are a very loyal sister, kudos to you. My circle always thought your brother was not very close to you and your family. I also never claimed to be a typist or speller. Many people on here mispell things. The way I spelled your last name was a joke I started with my friends because of how your brother used to treat me. Yes childish and immatuure. Knowing that you have been in the industry you cannot tell me that you have never done anything wrong or hurtful to anyone. I will aplogize to you as I feel bad that I was attacking your family. Not cool!!! I will not apologize for feeling that what happened in this situation is tragic and that although your brother may be innocent he hitched is business afairs to a crook. I hope that he is innocent and if not they through the book at all of them for stealing then trying to run. I wish you and your family peace of mind during this mess, sorry for any xtra pain.

I think it's pretty easy to be very giving
when the money doesn't belong to you in the first
place. I feel sorry for the children involved
and the victims involved.
As far as the wife goes, where did she think
the extra $1.5 million came from? You know how
much money your husband makes a month and you
know how much your bills total. It's a no
brainer. And ignorance is no excuse.
I hope while he is in prison when he is saying
prayers for his own well being..he remembers to
say a prayer for the victims of this crime too.

Give me a break, Meredith Cherubini got a lot out of this money, horses, clothes, new cars, fancy horse trailer and new truck. Oh, and Mark bought PBR bulls with some of the money. She signed a tax return each year with Mark. I only feel sorry for the two kids.
