Joe B, hits it on the head saying all horsemen are to blame for the Johnston's keeping them on the bottom of a totem pole.  Kept just above ground level, although at times feeling like being six feet under.  Maybe Tim Carey should just buy both tracks at a bottom level price, that suits the creditors.  Close them both until a date to be determine in the future.  Get his 61 racing dates and become host track for night time racing.  Your not losing much buying Balmoral at what could be a cheap price, it still has land value attached.  Hawthorne has a one mile dirt oval and seven furlong turf track.  I personally haven't been to Hawthorne in many years.  Would it be possible to add a 5/8 track in the center of the turf oval.  Point being if Carey, bought both tracks to close them, slots pass at some point, he knocks out the competition of Maywood Park 8-10 miles away for gaming.  Builds a 5/8 track or scraps the turf course to have a longer harness meet.  They can race day night double headers on the weekend.  Tim, could have track with both options to go along with a slot casino inside.  That's a trifecta!   
I'm with ya! I do believe tim carey has a plan in mind with the hope of hawthorne slots....without Maywood around...hawthorne slots would be a gold mine business..
ive recently been to Scioto in Columbus and river downs now belterra park in cincy..both have slots...and both were packed with people pushin those slot buttons..hawthorne would be a slot gold mine no doubt in my mind

Has to be Barn Doll.   Killing everything in the NYSS and not eligible to the Oaks, or any of the big races this year. She is special. Real deal .

That was my first thought but didn't want to appear prejudiced after the J.G. thread. (-:

cant blame ya for goin east where the money is..as a fan ive gone to springfield almost every year for prob 20 yrs now...back in the day there was nothing better than an afternoon of great racing...and ive always preferred watchin the state breds versus watchin the open company ( remember when all the big boys used to make driving appearances there?)...but the ill bred finals were the races I used to love to watch..

now how much are they goin for??  15?  sad...very sad...I wont be headin there this year..waning interest for sure..

"a little more defense of 2015 Arlington meet"

So that's the new term for "calling bullshit on 1st over's unsubstantiated, undocumented, fabricated, and regularly proved wrong by actual events barstool rumors about Tony and Howard".

Interesting.

Oh well. Pretty much the same level of journalistic "integrity" practiced by your hero and role model, the thankfully departed ex-horsemen's newsletter writer over most of his career, though, so it's easy to understand where you picked it up.

Hey 1st - it's August! Almost one year since you and your crue pronounced Tony fired! Sweet work, there, on your part.

You are coming across now as a gutless creep who is far too cowardly to share a name or two of any eligible who might be worthy of the $15,000 starting fee. 

You just don't get it.  This has nothing to do with cowardice or guts, it has to do with ignorance.  I never claimed to have any special insight to this or any other crew of Hambo eligibles.

I am simply stating again that long shot winners are born when they have "no chance" at the time of entry or post position draw.  Why can you not understand that?  When a 50-1 shot wins an overnight race, they usually look like they should be 50-1 on paper!  It's the unpredictable part of the sport!  bang head bang head bang head

So I repeat, do you go this far & then chicken out for the last $15,000?  Apparently, you do.  Now we know who the gutless one really is.

   Crow Boy apparently very well rested for long Saturday of extended self-fingering; one-day C Stinky record of 221 posts in danger?

   Maybe juice it with a little more defense of 2015 Arlington meet.

Who do you like out there??

Race 3- UF Fast Feelin was off cover to a slow pace and a superior winner in last. Moves from the Ford barn where he was one of many to the Borke barn who is doing quite well this year. Gets Brett Miller and I think he'll be out and winging it tonight. Has a super brush. 5W3/4/10
Pick Four ( 5-2/6/7-8-7)

Race 5 - David's Dream looks good for another for Burke. Raced huge last week against this class. Gets Gingras back in the bike. Won't go below even money here. 8W2/3/1

Race 7 - an elimination race but a decent price should be had on Katniss. Svandstedt has brought this horse along with the Hambo in mind. Her last race was very impressive (check out the replay) she was reserved but flew effortlessly in the lane. She can beat these. 5W6/8/1
Pick Four (5/6/8-3/4/7-8/10-6)

Race 10 - Odds On Equuleus has looked like a new horse since they have started to race him near the front. He has always been quick and looks good enough to beat these on the class rise. 6W8/5/1

Race 11 - State Treasurer is the best here. Ideal post should have him able to move when he needs to . Don't play below even money. 5W7/2/1

Good luck to all!!

 I loved Hawthorne harness.  It blew May and Balmoral away.
