They need to do the same on Friday even though that would just move the start time back 2 hours. Friday is supposed to be the hottest(only by a little bit) day of this week.

Wouldn't be surprised if they cancel Thursday. Only reason they ran today was the crowd they get for the fireworks show is large.

I've been in Las Vegas when its been 115 and today at 102 w/humidity felt worse.

Penn National moving friday card to later start.

Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course will move its first race post time from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, July 6, and Saturday, July 7, in an effort to minimize the effects of the heat wave that is dominating the mid-Atlantic region.

Seems to me if you want to beat the heat, you'd move the post time up a couple hours to an a.m. start, not back into the hottest part of the day.

maybe by moving it later they are trying to not compete with the tracks that run in the morning or earlier in the day (I am on the west coast.. so it's still morning here).

The article clearly states the move is due to heat.

I moved to Florida so I could get some heat. However, this year up North
it seems to me that the heat is really bad. Did a car not go airborne
due to the pavement buckling and have some people not dropped
dead due to the heat? It just seems like a very unusual weather
phenomenon is taking place and everyone should take heed. I think
it is a safety issue and not a joke.

yes I know that. Rastajenk asked why they didn't move it to earlier in the day as opposed to later in the day. My suggestions was so they didn't have to compete with other tracks. Although depending on how much notice, it's probably easier to move to a later time than an earlier time. The logistics of notifying everyone that the races will be starting early must be a nightmare.

Sorry, I missed that. I agree, an earlier post would be a disaster.

Well of course it would hurt the handle and piss off handicappers (but what doesn't?), and maybe some ship-ins would have to scratch, if they hadn't already; but it wouldn't be that difficult to start two hours earlier, pay out the purses to keep the local economy going, and just put it in the books as better than a lost day, and move on. It might cause our Mr Goren to blow a fuse trying to rationalize it all, but it could be done.

They used to start at 7:30.....when it was really night racing.
People who work just don't get home in time for a lot these so called night tracks. I used top play Penn every single night. Haven't played it all in several years now.
