One trainer told a friend of mine, "The damn polytrack F**KED up all my horses" the first or second year he was there...and he never thought to do anything else to improve his stock.
This wasnít just Arlington. This happened at other tracks. Strangling horses into the stretch and then trying to run a quarter horse race was pretty common on plastic for awhile.

When the horses went away, so did my money. 6 horse races were awful at Arlington

APís poly was a lot of fun to play back around 2012-2014 when it was nearing the end of its useful life, but you had to track some non traditional stats to do it - temp, humidity, cloud cover, etc. There would be 3 or 4 days a year where you would have a sudden temp drop, with rising humidity going from sun to cloud cover that turned the poly into a turf course that favored deep closers. Judging by how few people id share the pick 4 and pick 5 pools with those days, not too many people had it figured out

I hope you didn't spend all your winnings in one place.

Those days were free money and I knew it the second I stepped outside to walk the dog in the morning. My box was up by a few of the trainers and Iíll never forget the look on one of their faces when I walked back with the ticket and told him he had a lock and he thought I was high. Even the trainers didnít understand how that track played

I selfishly wish a track like CBY that has the same temperature and humidity swings would install poly
