I usually just concentrate on the Chicago tracks. But I decided I want to look into watching another track. What tracks would you guys (and gals) recommend and why.

My preferences are for decent sized fields.

Except for Bay Meadows, all seem to be offering big fields. There are good horses out west this year.

Without Fair Grounds running in February and March, you should get a lot of full fields at Tampa, Oaklawn and Gulfstream.  I've always been a fan of Sam Houston, but then again,  I like cheap racing.

Yeah what sucker says. Sam Houston. cheap racing but full fields
and some value a sharp handicapper

Gulfstream turfers offer a lot of value.

Never liked OP because of no turf course.

Tampa seems hit or miss to me.

I bet your boning up for next weekends two day extravaganza
in Las Vegas.

not going to Vegas, maybe next year.  just found that I was doing too much baking (not a problem, the problem was I kept eating what I was baking)
going to the OTB is just the reward I like for going to the gym and doing my workouts. Cheesy

Sam Houston sure has some pigs racing.  I can recall a few years ago watching a race (glad I wasn't betting it) and they hammered a horse to 2-5 in a cheap claimer.   He got stuck behind a wall and a 80-1 won, 48-1 second and 25-1 third.   I don't think there were any winning tickets on the tri.

I like Gulfstream (not always full fields).

If you like cheap racing, Penn National and the Ohio tracks provide alot.

For cheap racing I've recently grown to like Buehla, it seems that there is often a horse at 3-5 which you can't figure out why and they often don't run

Jeezuz, ageecee, that's a lot of combos. When 1/5th seconds separate winners from losers, they're not, then, that much better.

Lots of combos and nice payouts if you can hit the exotics
