The management of GP seems to not give a hoot about horse racing or their customers. Doubt they have a clue about either.

I'd rather shovel my neighbor's driveway than bet a GP race.
Just not that desperate.

GP has hired a new turf supervisor and he has told everyone just leave me alone and I will get that course back in shape.
I will be there tomorrow through the weekend and I will ask a few questions maybe I will get a few answers!

What a coincidence!
I would much rather watch grass grow than make a bet at GP!

There is no grass, they just spray painted the dirt green.

D'oh!

It looks like dirt to me, like no grass.
Maybe just not good enough resolution on TVG.

I just got back from spending the last 4 days at GP the turf course looks ok, the new turf supervisor is trying his best to move the rail and get fresh turf each and every day. It isn't as bad as everyone is stating.

Sunday they listed the track condition for the turf course as "partial."

Now if they could only time the race's properly we might have something.

Why should they bother doing anything?

Handle is up at least 9%.

Maybe more.

One place said 20% for some days, like this past weekend - compared to the same one last year!

You think they care what we say about them?
