I have a feeling this one will be well received by our host!! LOL


Prior to today's card, NYRA had technical difficulties and couldn't get the show Talking Horses to air whatsoever!

Race 1 was run at 5f. But the condition book, the overnight, and the program all said 5.5 furlongs. NYRA explains after the fact they go by the diagram in the program. HILARIOUS.

Pick 6. Oops. 2 races taken off the turf due to rain after that start of the pick 6 that no one could have ever seen coming . . . I mean unless you think standing on the train tracks with the train barreling down on you with horns blaring and lights ON means you should have seen and heard it coming. This resulted in a problem with the carryover by rule not being paid out and they couldn't within the pool correct the takeout from 24 percent to 15 percent. So they put 21k into the pool to reduce the takeout to just under 15 percent to make it right.

A few days ago, they had technical difficulties with the odds not being on the screen almost the entire day leading to conspiracy theories that Serling had to shoot down. But the technical difficulty theme has to be concerning to the NYRA folks.

Some Good News...well maybe. They are being extra fan friendly at Saratoga for the Belmont Stakes. They have decided your cash is No Good there to purchase anything. You just won $1000 on Race 3 on Belmont Stakes Day and want to spend it on Drinks and Shake Shack for your pals. Too bad. Get out your debit, credit card or maybe they have the reverse ATM's on track. Just the experience fans want as horse racing bettors. And of course, I've heard from nearly all the Saratoga guys I know from these parts of all the gouging techniques they have employed for those 4 days.

You literally can't make this stuff up about how screwed up horse racing is these days. YAY NYRA!!!

miff would be typing clueless clown Emojis if he still posted in these parts LOLOL!!!
