Other than Saratoga there wasn't a meet that I looked forward to more than Keeneland Fall/Spring. Not anymore. Enough is enough. Count me in.

I would rather boycott incompetent race track racing secretaries who despite large pool of horses and high purse structure manage to card totally absurd race cards.

These guys should take a look at what the racing secretary at GP does with far less during their winter meet to make it the most successful racing meet in the country.

As far as Kee is concerned, their racing secretary consistently puts out a great product to bet on unlike the dufus in NYRA.

I will NOT partake in any boycott of KEE, but I would look with an open mind to boycotting NYRA race structure. Look at the dearth of bettable P-4 they offer as they will invariably stick some NY-breds maiden or claimer in the sequence, why?

If you don't boycott tracks that raise takeout, then there is no disincentive for them to do it again and again .

If you don't care what you pay for something, then you probably have too much money.

No, they don't even give me a product that I can wager on by choice because they rather cater to shills.

There are so many instances where these large wagering pools are won by insiders, it's just sickening.

Take out is a secondary issue.

I ordered a new pickup truck this morning. Had to make 3-4 decisions that all had to do with price. You know, the secondary issue.........
