None of this surprises me- Hialeah staged the "Chicken Flamingo" when Buckpasser ran (no PLACE betting), and there have even been betless exhibitions like Seabiscuit-Ligaroti in the past.

As I have said in many conversations, not everything in horse racing is designed to please you.

If you don't like KD, there are other options.

That doesn't surprise me. If a top horse got in trouble in a 20 horse field, the BC would never hear the end of it.

All 3 of our tracks have space limitations. Los Al is pushed all the way back to the property line. Del Mar has a hill behind the far turn and the fairgrounds buildings on the clubhouse turn....

Well, 2 things:

1. NYRA claims to make money on the winter meet. I don't necessarily buy that, but if NYRA is right then that's a reason to run the meet. No Southern California race meet in early...

The best solution is to combine SoCal and NorCal into 1 circuit, which was status quo 1938-1967.

The second best solution is to take a break from November 15-December 25.

It's still a bullring. Horses have to really corner well there, no different than if they were cheapos at Ferndale.

You need to check their filings with the CHRB for the exact numbers, but it's approximately 7 furlongs and 130 yards around, with less than 100 yards run into the first turn. That short run into the...
