Exactly. Sure are a lot of people fussing even though it's not costing them a dime.

For some reason, they never thought it a problem that a man who takes the wealth of a country as his own puts up a huge pot, but it's all *itch and moan when we have to be more creative in how we fund such a race.

Fager Fan,

Why would I want to waste more than a couple of bucks on Frank's Faulty Folly? The PAYgasus sham.

Maybe I'll bet $10 for fun on Sharp Azteca to see if Navarro is able to say FU to the racing establishment.

I'll wait till Sunday, put a couple hundred in on the mandatory distribution of the Rainbow 6 and scoop up all that dumb-peoples money that's been accumulating for months?

None of it, not even 20-cents of it mine.

The other Stronach gimmick to take money out of circulation daily. Thanks Frank for suckering so many fools into discarding their money every day.

I've already done it twice in the last 5 years, once for 4K and once for 12K. Never have I spent more than $256. Spent $160 for the 12K.

Otherwise, Gulfstream sucks for too many reasons to bother repeating.

Hope you enjoy yourself and contribute to my paydays.

You sound like someone who wants Navarro to say FU. Which tells me all I need about you.

You've got plenty of other tracks to play, so go play 'em. No one cares.

Let me ask a dumb question.....

They have a second finishline for 8.5 furlong races.
Why no start the 9.0 furlong races at that point, and end them there?

Same stretch as the 8,5 and a fair start for the 9.0??

I am assuming these are the two finish lines?

Probably silly, but I'd guess Trakus was never set up for that configuration.

Yeah, probably.
I know we used to refuse customer orders for certain things because we didn't have 24 inch calipers!

I think that's a smart question.

A great con job by TSG.

Gulfstream is their biggest shyster operation going.

Like they say, a sucker is born every minute. Plenty to be taken advantage of by people like Frank.

They even pay people off with freebies and perks to take their side and promote what the're doing. It's standard operating procedure.
Jeez man...let it go already...the jealousy is not pretty.
