Daily Racing Program Changes

As a part time player, the Daily Racing Program (DRF product) has been helpful with spot plays and ability to do quick analysis.

Unfortunately, they've made some changes, two very important omissions!

1. No speed figures for turf races (?)
2. No FTS trainer or sire information for maiden races

That really put a dent in my willingness to wager and to purchase the product going forward. I thought that the book version may be different from the on-line version, but sadly, they were the same

Have there be other changes that I've overlooked that you've noticed? And does anyone have a contact at DRF to work with?

I'm looking at a Sept 6 edition now and can see both items. Did this happen in the last few days?

Yes, here in NJ, they list "Book 1" just under the Day on the cover;changes are in today's and tomorrow's but were not evident in Weds or Thurs editions. "Book 1" normally is not showing on the cover page

When there have been power outages at their printing plant, we would get book 1 and the PPs would be different but only lasted a day or two.

DRP doesn't have the purse as part of the conditions of each running line? I find that hard to believe...need to grab me a copy one of these days...

They added another call, it looks like a mid stretch call?

Well, me and my racing buddies stopped buying the Racing Program and called in complaints, you can call at 1-800-306-3676

Everybody at the simulcast is calling in to complain....hit them in the pocket.

Daily Racing Program Changes

Interesting; I downloaded their $1 programs for BEL, 9/27 and 9/28 and was disappointed to see no alphabetical index of entries or trainers. Two e-mails to their Customer Disservice Dept. went unacknowledged and unanswered.
