Wow now we even have an editorialist in the Murdoch-owned Wall Street journal saying the same thing:

"Her election alone is what stands between the American nation and the reign of the most unstable, proudly uninformed, psychologically unfit president ever to enter the White House."

Yes Yonkers and the SOANY are always thinking of it's fan base
 all 25 fans  who attend Yonkers on a regular basis
    Now in an attempt to market the Timmy ROONEYS 1.000 000 International
 trot , THE SOA PRES JOSEPH A FARALDO is once again attempting to 
 energize the the fans who have been over looked all year , And whos hue an
 cry,fell on deaf ears   for replacing  bulbs on the tote board or, to  moving the
 finish line,
    Where are  all those state advertising funds given to Yonkers management 
 just for the sole porpose of advertising harness racing
    guess they went sout along with the capitol improvement money which is
 never spoken of , but the stategives it up annually, but it's never mentioned

According to the CPI calculator, avg purses in 2015 would have to have been at $42K to be equal to the $27K paid out in 1995.

Anyone remember what the day rate was in the mid '90's?

In the early 90's, Cot Campbell of Dogwood Stable was a guest speaker at a Breakfast at Arlington we attended. At that time, he said it cost $20,000 annually just to keep a racehorse in racing so horses would have to earn that amount just to pay for themselves. Today, it's at least $36,000.

 Well then joseph a faraldo esq ;
     Does THAT  class stop at Eric Abbatiello.or just friends of faraldo esq
     looks like a track promotion put on by you as a P.R campaign for the
     up coming election. It's looks like a quod quo pro between you and Yonkers 
     mgt The same that took place when you were caught giving away
     scholarships to the assistance race secretary,And then you paniked and
     claimed it was a YONKERS m soa scholarshp fund
.    strange but tjhat announcement being made after the discovery of you giving
    an illegal a scholarshipto an illegal the asst race sec, remember.
        ONCE AGAIN YOU ARE USING THE YONKERS MGT , ASSETS OF THE SOANY
    TO PROMOTE YOUR  POLITICAL AGENDA
       Eric Abbatiello is a horsemen , therefore he qualifies for accomplishments he
    achieves , And at any track  drivers are independent contractors but are
    drivers by trade, BUT ALSO IN THAT CATERGORY ARE DRIVERS LIKE JOHN
    CAMPBELL, Who's acheivements have never been given any
    acknowledhgement  by you, or the SOANY, And it's all political  John Campbell
    is the president of the grand circuit ,AND A REAL SELECTION AS THE VOICE
    OF HARNESS  . BUT BECAUSE HE IS CONSIDERED AN ADVERSARY OF YOUR
    BECAUSE HIS OPINION DIFFERS FROM YOURS ON MANY OCCASIONS .AND ALSO
    CONSIDERS THE MEADOWLANDS home base,
        THIS MR FARALDO THIS EXPOSES   YOUR HYPOCRICY , AND YOUR   
   POLITICAL AND PERSONAL AGENDA  AND NOT OF  YONKERS OR SOANY,

What a classy track. Guy wins a milestone race at another track, and Yonkers still gives him his props.
Nothing but class at Yonkers !



Abbatiello feted for milestone win
Friday, September 30, 2016 - by Frank Drucker, Publicity Director, for Empire City at Yonkers Raceway

         
Yonkers, NY --- Driver Eric Abbatiello, who reached the 2,000-win milestone early in the day on Thursday (Sept. 29), was duly recognized by Yonkers Raceway. Proving it’s nothing if not a good sport, the Raceway offered congrats to Abbatiello, who arrived at his latest plateau at Freehold Raceway.

 
Eric Abbatiello celebrated his 2,000th career driving victory at Yonkers Raceway on Thursday.
The 47-year-old Abbatiello, whose Harness Hall of Fame father, Carmine, won a few Yonkers races in his day, is actually at 2,001 wins and more than $13.2 million in career purses. His single-season bests are 212 wins (2014) and $1.6 million in purses (2008) in career which began in 1999, but wasn’t ‘full-time’ until 2005.

Yonkers’ Thursday Pick-5 wager, beginning with a double-carryover of just under $8,200, attracted $25,620 of fresh funding. The winning combination of 5/1/2/1/4 paid $217.50 for every correct .50-cent wager.
