Well, I am down here. The true story is the attendance on Thursdays is terrible. Around 2,000. In fact there will be no Thursday racing next year in November. They are adding an extra weekend with Friday-Sunday racing only. If it did rain next Thursday, attendance would be around 500 -- just salty dogs like me.The true story indeed.
