Apparently, Arlington has rented the Gulfstream timer

All kinds of missing fractions and bogus times the past few weeks.

Was mostly confined to timer malfunctions in turf races but this past week had several misstimed, or just missing times on the poly.

Nice way to respect your customers.
Wonder if they can even spell it?

Another joke of a track off my list.

Wouldn't call the track a joke becuase of some mechanical issues. Would hope they go back and fix whatever times are off (based on replays etc). My experience is that management is beginning to realize that the bettor is their customer. Will take some time, but slowly getting there.

Gee, I thought time mattered in RACES!

It's not the mechanical failures, it is the handling of them them.
When the BECOME customer oriented, call me.
Until then AP remains a joke.

Agree jd.....but perhaps they really should consider abandoning rail placements from which they can't accurately time races. Thinking of the lane 5 races with the rail 15'or 23' out as it was the entire 1st week of the meet. I really wish they'd go back to having 2 courses...the inner and outer.

I don't think anyone out of either race is going to show up at a track near you or me in the next few weeks....so what's the point you're trying to make here?

Good point! I hadnt thought about this, but moving the rail does impact time etc. (even if accurately measured)
