To me moving to night racing isn't much of a bargain. Often, as soon as the sun goes down the humidity goes up. Makes it very difficult to cool down after physical activity.

Yep..In Wisconsin.
BTW, today was the first round of the US Women's Open Golf Tourney.
Today it was over 100 degrees there for 5 hours. The tourney site is about 100 miles north of Chicago.
Checked the daily climate records for the East Coast. Basically every station south of Albany, NY was well above normal temp today. JFK Airport was 95.
Wilmington, DE hit 98....Same nonsense for the Balto/Wash area.

People who work just don't get home in time for a lot these so called night tracks. I used top play Penn every single night. Haven't played it all in several years now.
If you notice, it's mostly slot tracks that have those ridiculous early post times. I guess if you don't care about handle the object is to get the races over as quickly as possible. I prefer 8 pm like the old days.

Tom is right. If they truely wanted to avoid the heat, a 7:30 post time would be a lot more reasonable. Most of time, the temperature has moved at least 5 or 6 degrees of it highs by 7:30. I would have no problem with a 7:30 PT if they did it for heat related reasons. It show some real concern about the horses. It would probably cost some handle, but it is a reasonable compromise. I doubt if any race track will do it. It makes too much sense.

I was not suggesting anything about heat, only convenience for those who work all day.

deleware cancelled Parx cancel's

saturday's cards

they are doing the right thing in both cases. i know that some people will say that they did not cancel like this years ago. years ago they didn't use lassix either, something that de-hydrates the horses. in this kind of weather it is unhealthy for the horse. its unhealthy for humans as well that are on lassix. the air is very heavy and full of insects that you breath.

Heat Cancellations?

Monmouth is holding a handicapping contest Sat., with the 500K United Nations as the feature. Contest will be rescheduled if Monmouth does not run a live card. Other contest tracks are Belmont & Calder.

Spoke to someone in their racing office about an hour ago re the possibility of cancellation tomorrow. It is being discussed. He would not say when a decision would be made one way or the other, but did mention they are mindful of trainers shipping in for tomorrow. I told him I'd call back around 5.

Anyone hear what Belmont is doing for tomorrow?

Supposed to be near 100 degrees on Saturday with the heat index well over that. I hope they cancel.

Give me 1 good reason why they could not run the races at night and let me bet on them the next day. an obvious solution...no?

With Delaware & Parx cancelling Sat. I'd be very surprised if Monmouth didn't follow suit. Last year Monmouth cancelled multiple cards on opening weekend at Saratoga, which did run.
