There's some question as to whether Hawthrone will be fielding any NTRA teams in 2006. There's been a rumor that instead of this being their Spring NTRA qualifier, the winner(s) might get a trip to the big Orleans contest in Vegas instead. All rumors, you know how racetracks are.

No.  The spring contest is just a cash money tournament.  Hawthorne plans to drop out of the NTRA from everything I hear.

I was looking around for tourneys that might be a nice trip to and was reading Laurels rules and they forbid any owner or trainer who has an interest in a race from playing it.

From playing that one race. It doesn't say what happens if they have a horse in a race that's a mandatory race. Of course, these rules don't say anything about mandatory races, either, just a pool of races from eligible tracks.

Laurel is not a "nice trip", by the way. A very ordinary, somewhat run down facility, in a very ordinary suburb.

Colonial Downs would be a nice trip if you are looking at that part of the country.

Thanks for the heads up, I haven't been in that area since my 8th Grade Field trip. I would like to play in a few tourneys this year - I didn't manage to get to any in 2005 - the real money ones intrigue me a bit more than the regular ones.

I went to Laurel last month and the place is not that bad. Plenty of free seats and free tv boxes. Nice simo facility. If you like Hawthorne you should not mind Laurel. The suburb is quite run down but you are only 20-30 minutes from DC. I agree, Colonial is nicer but it is closer to Richmond than DC.

Don't tell me that you too got to go to colonial Williamsburg on your 8th grade field trip ?  I still have photos (for blackmail purposes-LOL) from that trip.   trotter  TC

Thats the trip - I think half the 8th Graders in Illinois end up going on that, I guess your trip wasn't too well supervised either from the pictures comment.
