Any place that can't time a race correctly after a few years deserves any criticism they get.

Anything Penn Gaming related, especially to the sport of horse racing, is a colossal joke and why someone would even support them as a gambler is beyond me

Sub-par competition in the pools. The place is an absolute goldmine. Train your focus there and thank me later, sir.

I'd be careful inviting too much competition, pools aren't exactly NYRA size.

Actually, I need slightly bigger pools so my bets don't budge the odds. Not a big player, at all-but I do move the odds a bit if I really like a longshot. And my characteristic 70 or 80 to win on shorter priced locks (??..lol) also puts a nick in my payoff.

And that's not considering the 2 or 3 guys I sometimes advise. They mainly play gimmicks, but a standard win bet for them is from 100 to 200 bucks.

I'd love to increase my bets, but I'd sometimes be cannibalizing myself-at least a little.

Fresh snow made traction unsafe by balling up in the horse's feet.

For me:

Timing issues, integrity issues, company issues.

3 Strikes and they are OUT

Good to see them racing again.

Question for anyone attending the races live on track:

Today, at about the one minute mark after the listed post time for R1, the horses were returned to the paddock - and a distance change was announced:

6F to 5.5F.

Anyone know specifics as to why?

Appears to be the case.

After R2, they announced all of the remaining 6F races... R3, R8, R10 will now be run at 5.5F.

After an ice storm and a total of 9 inches of snow, racing resumed on Monday. The ensuing thaw made the 6 furlong chute a quagmire. The truck that steers the starting gate could not set up properly due to the deep mud. The chute is tricky, as it never sees sunlight, so it's surface can remain icy longer than the rest of the track.

A shout-out to my pal Larry "Big Daddy" who hit the Buckeye Pick 6 today for over $5800. He played it on track, starting off with 2 singles, the 1st one being a $35.00 horse! He had the only 2 live tickets going into the last leg. They ran 1st and 2nd! Talk about STUPID POOLS!

Remainder of card cancelled after R7 (the first leg of the pick4.)

Gotta give them credit for doing the right thing:

All pick4 wagers refunded.

Hook gaining cred amongst players. They pay attention to his picks.

As a jock's agent, former official, on-screen handicapper, and avid bettor, the dude has real chops and elevates the joint. Quite an asset to his employers.
