Why bother? You're responding to someone who was as wrong as anyone could possibly be, for months, about literally everything, yet has the nerve to come here and wave a victory flag, when any even reasonable person would admit he was wrong, and move on. It's actually sad.

Forget about the fact that the Saratoga meet would likely have been held at Aqueduct, or at least the majority of it, in order to run the needed turf races, for us to still be at Belmont for the upcoming six weeks. So while Belmont would have handled a fraction of what Saratoga did, Aqueduct would have handled even less....but you know all this.

Only someone with a ridiculous agenda would ignore how much more attention was paid to Saratoga Live than the shows at Belmont and not realize this goes hand in hand with the higher handle numbers.

But forget about all that, and so many other things not even worth bringing up ( I'll keep this under the length of the average post from one of the defeated ), an important factor that nobody has mentioned is that this year's Saratoga meet confirmed NYRA's commitment to the city of Saratoga, and the surrounding areas. Had we not run, the storyline right now would be "Will they even be back in 2021?" It's not even a question, and the simple fact is that no matter what they think or say, the naysayers around here have absolutely no idea the importance of Saratoga to the State of NY. Fortunately, NYRA does
