Wilson chute at the Spa in 2022?? (613 Views)

NYRA announced the restoration of the Wilson chute at Saratoga, to allow races to be run at a mile.

Not a great idea IMHO, as in '92 they brought it back, and it heavily favored the 1-2-3 post; nearly impossible to win from the outside. It lasted just one season.

Speaking of post bias, the 9F races there have the same issue; I have always wondered why they don't run more 1 3/16M races, as it is late summer, and the 2-turn horse can handle the stretch-out, and it gives you a longer run to the turn.
