a trip to arlington is a trip to the zoo, it is  a reflection of the way the women in the northwest suburbs dominate every aspect of life in suburbia there, and reflects on just how stoneless the men in that area are. they even control how the track is operated now, since time began a male dominted venue, now controled once agin by the mobs that just don't want to stay home and be loving parents, i guees its too difficult to be a mommy, easier to pretend you are a man.
Mother's Day at AP, is a great day. However, I do hope Mary Z. (trainer ?) takes a bath before her Rio Rose thing. As far as Liane Davis's Rio Rose, she definately deserves this. She has wonderful kids and her family is VERY hard working. She does a good job.

This is one of AP's problems. Too many people (mothers/kids/seniors) sitting around doing everthing else but betting. I'm not sure they even watch the races.

Well, there's no chance of them betting at all if they aren't at the track to begin with. As long as they pay their admission, and buy some grossly overpriced admissions, and occasionally place a wager, they're paying customers.

Take it easy on the visitors, everyone. Have you ever been to a steeplechase? Tens of thousands of people all there for the sporting event and the socializing, with nary a legal wager in sight. Some people like to watch horse races, and some like to socialize. They have a right to the track same as you. Besides Mother's Day and Father's Day, the park is big enough for everyone.

OTOH, the redcoat brigade COULD occasionally say something to the parents whose little Biffette or Buffette is running wild, unsupervised. But for the most part, they're under control.

CLOCKERTERRY,

Mother / wife is not along for the ride as Dad teaches his son about the finer things in life if it's going to the track or any other sporting event.Women,drinking,gambling sports etc Father and son share moments that are  different if mother is along for the ride.My dad being from the old country believed wrestling was real and we all know it isn't but I went along with him and enjoyed it.

Most guys will tell you they got hooked on some sport because of their dad.IMO

Well, some families like to go all together, not just jr. and dad. All the time I see dads out there playing horses, with the bigger kids helping him place bets, while mom supervises the youngest varmints. Even the little kids carry around handfuls of losers playing bet.

Take is easy on bashing the kids.   My austic 8 year old even made a song about what happens on Sundays.   He sang it of the AP folks but it got cut because he would refer in the song about "swiping your card".   His song also mention the Junior Jockey Club.
The next generation, good for your son. Austism is rough for a family to deal with, you should be very proud.
