Power cuts - It happens
Cancelling racing due to air quality- a new one but understandable
Closing the turf tracks after an accident- understandable
Dubious stewards decisions- it happens
Large amount of vet scratches before racing - just about understandable

Taken together in pretty short order ...pompes l'air!

I was planning/hoping to go on the 16th with my wife, our horse finished 2nd in the Sheppard last year - we will now take a pass on the day - had been planning it for some time actually

Wake me up when the Keystone Kops routine at the Spa is over - what a nightmare this meet has been, Thursday at the Spa was a nice day actually (though the turf course did seem a bit off then already), it is all falling apart in a hurry
One thing is for sure morons are running the NYRA circus
