MNR Delays

Why do we get a 10 minute delay at MNR everytime they scratch a horse at the gate? Frustrating!

And... how about OPEN THE DAMN STARTING GATE already!

The starter at MNR is really starting to piss me off.

They load the final horse, then he waits and waits and waits 5-10 seconds before pushing the button to open the bloody gates.

The problem is that one of the horses usually gets agitated at being in there that long and rares and flips in the gate leading to the long scratch delays you speak of.

But, lo and behold, when they reload the same horses for the second attempt, as soon as the last horse enters the gate, the starter waits one second then the gates open right away. That's the way he should have done it the first time!!!

What's wrong with this guy? Open the damn gates so they can run for gawd sake!

They are at it again tonight. This one has gone on for about 1/2 an hour. What a joke!
