: So a length or two innacuracy in times is common? Do they vary from race to race, or is the entire card generally off by the same margin?

: BTW, Does anyone else think the invisible finish line (and the new camera angle) is a bad idea? They at least need to borrow that yellow line/first down technology from the NFL. Pictures of stewards ruffling through a drawer to find a photo finish to match their tickets fill my paranoid head. Or I guess they could just do it with a computer. Even worse. I'm joking, sort of.

I agree with you 100%. That track is a joke; imagine a rubber band stretched as far apart as possible, with stretches way too long and the turns way too sharp. Spt used to be a great track; when it was a 5 furlong track. I've been a Chicago area horse bettor for almost 20 years and I refuse to play that garbage dump.
