Does there really have to be a half hour between races.
I think 30 minutes is SOP for just about every track in the US.

Not really, just at the bigger tracks and meets.

Agree with you about the picnic area, but I would keep the 6-day racing week. They are the only US track, I believe, that runs 6 days a week. Mondays are the worst day there, everyone knows what to expect on Mondays.

Wanting to just add my 2 cents. For 6 weeks of racing I love the 6 day race week. Late summer, heat, overwork, lots of grill outs, horseshoe playing, and beers, it's nice to downshift and be into racing all damn week!

30 minutes between races is perfect IMO. Only a drag when it gets to be 40-50. Been a Saratoga-Monmouth-Gulfstream-Del Mar guy and the races don't seem to overlap too much. Thus far the spacing has worked for me. They get clumped up and that's never fun.
