Truth in Advertising

Maybe instead of “Belmont at the Big A” the current meet should be called

“Aqueduct in January in October”

Would be a bit more accurate

Am watching Keeneland, it is literally a mob scene

Was the Champagne really today?

What do you have against steeplechase racing anyway?

Gives horses another purpose, somehow that’s a problem?

Keeneland is much more interesting today, as is Gulfstream's mandatory P6 today, let alone Woodbine and the Keeneland-SA P6 - did NYRA have no plans for a day which historically was a big day (Champagne, Turf Classic, etc.)?

no the rain isn't NYRA's fault but the idea that NY racing is supreme is now mere hubris at best
There was no carryover at Gulfstream. It was paid out yesterday. They announced the pool would be seeded with 50k for bettors, but then recanted and said it was a guarantee, not a seed.

Imagine if that happened at NYRA! You'd probably even know about it.

Because running graded events in New York ... in the rain ... in October ... is not January. Assertions otherwise would be incorrect.

Same with me - some great racing this Saturday including Up to the Mark getting up over Master of the Seas. That does not mean today's BAQ races were not exciting.

Yes. Was this a question?

Nothing other than the fact that you are simply too foolish to realize without NYRA that the jumpers have zero - less than zero - visibility in this sport. Would love to know your ROI on your syndicate. Oh heck, why bother?

Cool - agreed. So, appreciate the organizaton (NYRA) that gives you that chance, you human piece of ... well, you can finish the clause.

Why did hold the MTOs this morning because of rain, then scratch the MTOs for today's 4th race? The race then gets taken off the turf and the MTOs can't run. I assume there must be a logical explanation but it makes no sense to me.

well, at least it seems to be only weekly fiascos now...

horse breaks through the gate and is a DQ, okay

(by the way, great coverage of Far Hills last week and Talking Horses has been very good as have the Fox broadcasts - definitely not all fiascos from NYRA to be sure, some really good work lately, Acacia and Sara shining in particular, and Andy has had a very good year also, fair is fair,)

but where is the marketing for NY racing?

I hope that's coming by the time the new Belmont opens in 2035

In the early Pick-4, I was alive to both Pretti Xtreme (#6, $730) and Bustin Bay (#8, $445) on a narrow $8 ticket - crazy lucky to get to the final leg with Fluid Situation winning.

When the gates opened (and, of course, one opened early), I was (almost) immediately doing a search as to whether Bustin Bay would be a scratch or a DQ. Even if Bustin Bay was a "scratch", my ticket would have moved to Toned In (#7) who was second the final result.

Honestly, I felt like I lost today's fifth race multiple times.

Now, that's my story. Back to your post. Learn the rules. Read the rules. If I can "eat it" for a Pick-4 ticket and smile, you can take your foot off the marketing throttle.

Learn the rules, but...


So maybe the NY stewards need to learn the rules?

Tequila Sunday was one of my horses. She had such limited ability it wasn’t fun losing that win and purse.
