Now that the meet is over for a bit , it would be great time to figure out why no one answers
the contact the stewards on the Balmoral website.

I noticed back in January for some reason Darcy would list himself as driver on one horse when he would race 4 or more horses in a night so i kept tabs on it and it paid off big time as I have hit a couple of pick 5`s but unless you know to look for it the average bettor is blind sided.

This past Saturday he was listed to drive "Go Warrior Go" and low and behold he does not drive and here is the end result;

4-Go Warrior Go (J Dillander)                    17.60     7.40      4.60
6-Johnny Be Cool N (D Hiteman)                             10.20     7.60
9-Odds On Big Tom (D Magee)                                          7.60
Exacta(POOL $24,876  4-6) Paid $302.40
Trifecta(POOL $27,093  4-6-9) Paid $10,045.00
$1 Superfecta(POOL $14,626  4-6-9-2) Paid $3,100.40

Unfortunately I was unable to cash but my buddy did, as I told him about it some time ago
and he actually listened. It doesn`t cash all the time but a good percentage of the time.


Good Racing

most of these tracks have no idea what to do with their website.

A quick look at the yonkers site will give you an example.

A few years back in chicago they wouldn't have let Darcy do that.
A late driver change could only be replaced by a driver of equal status .
Darcy could only put up someone that the stewarts considered equal in driving ability.
As you might guess this caused a lot of arguments as to who was equal to who.
That plan didn't last long.

I am just an old "Hoss" trainer, that has been raced hard and put away wet. 
As my Friend from Maine(Ora Stratton) says "There are horse trainers, and then there are real "Hoss" trainers.

That is ironic as Darcy P. was going challenge the equal status driver change in court.  Now, as i understand it, a trainer can make any driver change up to one hour before post time without penalty  Darcy is frequently listed in the program as driver and rarely ends up driving.  I haven't followed it close enough to see if there is any pattern to the driver changes.  I've  wondered why Dave Magee isn't driving for Darcy much lately.  Anyhow, if you can make some  dollar     dollar    dollar  good for you.  If a trainer isn't sure who is going to drive I'd rather see a TBA listed on the program than a bogus driver listed.  As far as why the stewards didn't respond to your questions you may want to phone Balmoral 708-672-1414.  Its at least a start and you can post Balmoral response here. If the stewards aren't going to respond take the dam contact the steward feature down. Good Luck.
