The worst part is that it didnít need to happen, and so many 10s of thousands of people have been hurt along the way

Sad day, CDI started the ball rolling for Hollywood Park's demise so I know that terrible feeling.

And I was finally starting to get the hang of the synthetic racing surface.

CDI is a flesh eating bacteria that no one wants.....

Go to their home page.....

All they talk about is their earnings .....

Do you know , they only pay 9% of their profits to dividends...

Why is that so....we are all aware that they are NOT building their assets up...

Just selling them....

This picture below is a joke!!

APís poly was unique in that there was nothing noteworthy outside of a couple days a year when there would be a big temp drop, the humidity went up, and it was cloudy. When you caught that combo, it played like a turf course with the rail set at about 60í and it was bombs away with deep closers

CD buried Arlington today

Today, Churchill Downs buried Arlington Park after 94 years of racing, can anybody tell me what Churchill has done for racing in the last ten years except put the nails in the coffin of racing. It is all about slots and not keeping their word to the people and state of Illinois. No honor just greed and still no deal with Nevada.

I wonder what will happen to all the Arlington OTB's in Illinois. Do they just close them down?
