After court, racetrack owner John Johnston says he hopes his dad doesn't see his testimony where he called him an "ornery S.O.B."

"I'm glad Father's Day isn't this weekend," he said, smiling.

Johnston then told reporters he thought his testimony was "straightforward and forthcoming" and it would be up to jurors to decide anything more.

As for coming back to testify for the defense, Johnston's lawyer said his client was on notice by the defense to be ready.
