I was definitely being sarcastic with the "what traffic!" comment (I live on the Jersey Shore). But I do think the Turnpike is pretty good except for the few bottlenecks you hit. Certainly it is the...

I love Monmouth Park, too and agree the racing hasn't been very good later. Yesterday was very chalky in spots but the late Pick 5 did pay $2,200+ for $0.50 so wasn't all bad. You need to pick your...

What traffic?:D

The Turnpike south of the E/W split is the finest stretch of road in the NE Corridor!

None of what the online piece or all of it? When Monmouth Park was asked by TDN how much went to the horsemen, through its spokesman Luicci the track said "no comment".

According to the article, Monmouth's hold was 11.4%, which my limited understanding of sports betting suggests is not sustainable. Total handle for the state was $16.4 million for 17 days. Monmouth...

I agree Husker. Did some quick chart lookups of recent Belmonts and I don't think one would conclude the pace is slow. The pace is slow relative to what was needed to push Justify, and also relative...

Belmont winners' "credentials"

I like Hofburg in the Belmont at this point. Got into a friendly debate with a good racetracker friend- he's on this board- at Monmouth yesterday about Hofburg's lack of credentials going into the...

Today's stories had Delaware going ahead of NJ. I don't think this is really a big deal it's not like you have a big first-mover advantage. Monmouth has received plenty of publicity.

Certainly agree with the ďas it should beĒ. Just not sure how they do it amidst a construction zone. The track surface renovations I guess they can complete after the 2018 or 2019 Fall meets(?)
