What Immortal6 is saying is true. I am usually at the same table with my friends every weekend. Not shy about buying drinks either. Anyone that finds themselves at Fonner is welcome to look me up also. First time I met Immortal he PM me and asked where I was, my reply was "Sitting at the bar."

Similar here in OKC and all of Oklahoma. Took some getting used to for someone raised on the east coast but it is part of why I settled here.

Please accept my sincere apology for not giving a prompt reply to your kind response. And, should the travel venues open up again...I just may take you up on your offer. And if Fonner Park doesn't tap me out completely...the second round of drinks is on me.

Ah, Ak-Sar-Ben.

My first, and perhaps befogged by the passage of time, the top of the list of the ones I'd love to visit today.

Jay you often play Fonner even before it was one of few tracks running, right? Thought I've seen you cash some decent pick tickets in the past at Fonner.

I don't follow the track so I don't know about jockeys not trying, but horses at a certain level you probably can't push them too hard anyway, they are already being held together with duct tape.

Somebody brought this race to my attention just now, so I looked on the board here to see if it was brought up...couldn't find anything.

The ride on that 9-5 horse would be a reason not to bet Fonner when other tracks open back up, that's for sure.

Somebody even thought enough about this race to put it on YouTube:

Okay we have us a rematch in race 4 today.


One big difference. J Train gets a major positive jockey change

Ironic that a poster with the handle "Big Red" wouldn't pick right up on that.

When you run cheap claimers at any track, it is always a grab bag of mixed results everytime. Fonner this season has been very consistent when running at the allowance or minor stakes level.

Fonner is raking in the cash. For a bullring, this kind of money is relatively rare

Sheesh

Nice ride by Armando Martinez on the 4/5 favorite in the 6th race today. I understand things can happen in a race, and certainly can at this tier of racing. Problem is...in the 4 weeks I have been watching this track, this happens a LOT with Martinez.

I understand stuff like this is sometimes part and parcel of the game we are playing. I suppose the games are hidden better at the better tracks.

Armando Martinez is a disease.

For me the issue isnt that its cheap claimers or a bullring........its a short meet with horses you hardly see race anywhere else.If it was a longer meet it would probably be a better product from a betting perspective, and maybe the riders would improve or at least have a chance to attract some better ones.

Can someone explain something to me - the early pick 5 at Fonner is always listed in charts as "Jackpot pick 5" but only shows a payout, never a carryover. Is the early pick 5 actually jackpot, if so how does it work with the early/late pick 5 rolling over each other, like if there's a sole winner of both the early & late pick 5 is the holder of the late ticket screwed over from any carried over money?

The early P 5 is not a jackpot bet. I has nothing to do with the late P 5.
