Parx canceled today because......

The HOT BOX is not working and the riders can't make weight to ride!

Never heard that one before.

Would Keystone/Philadelphia Park (pre-slots) have cancelled for this reason? Having those machines humming everyday sure must be nice. Before slots, a bunch of overweight jockeys would have been riding that day because the races were going...as scheduled.

It is my understanding that the jockeys decided not to ride, thus the cancellation. Oversized purses...once again, must be nice.

Seriously...I would have to imagine anyone that follows/wagers on this track has to spend a lot of time frustrated. And that's BEFORE their money gets run over.

If they were smart, they would have made it so the weight allowances were five more pounds just for that day. Makes everyone happy. Jockeys can ride and get money, owners don't get screwed over on shipping bills, etc.

Also, it seems on Twitter and other discussions a lot of people believe the weights should be raised...don't think that solves anything

When did they inform the attendees? After they drove from their homes?

At least they didn't have to pay the 30% exotic takeout that day.

They had someone tell those five guys as they walked in the door. Luckily the casino was still open, and they still have time to catch the Early Bird at Denny's down the road.

This has to be a terrible way to live. Long past time to raise the weights.
