Because patience is a virtue, and failure breeds panic.  Dan "the Stick" Knox would never let them see him sweat, whether he was leading driver at Balmoral or 10th in the Maywood standings.  There was a driver.  The lesser drivers panic because each drive is food on the table, confidence from trainers, and more opportunities.  Just look at Hiteman, he puts himself in the trickbag 10 times a night, then tosses the salad like a hot-air balloonist dumping sandbags over the side to generate lift.  The game is in the head and the hands, another reason you never smell panic in Magee, unless there are trailers in the field or they are using a bike which benefits taller, leggier drivers.  TC

A very solid first over third.  He tried to force the cover, but had no such luck.  Still, a very solid drive.

3-2-0-1 $16,150....not too shabby.

Agreed, who wouldn't want to drive their beat up pick-up 900 miles to Delaware to earn $807.50 ?  TC

Come on, you guys are more worried about what Morgan is doing then you are about whats going on at Maywood in your own hometown.

    Let the brown and white maggot do his thing out there and who gives a damn. He isn't worried about anyone back in Chicago so why should we worry about him.

    TC
        With all his money he still drives a beatup old truck? Is he planning on taking it with him?

Pretty impressive, if you ask me.  When he starts getting 10 drives a night -- he'll be able to pay for gas! Wink

A "beat up" truck?  Does he have the newer white F250?  Didn't think it was too bad a ride.

Tom Burton told him that insurance would cost less if he drove an old beat up truck.

No, you could pay someone to move your things though.  Especially if you're sitting on MILLIONS and can retire to a desert island tomorrow and sip FREAKIN' umbrella drinks until your brain freezes.  Check the parking lot at the 'Lands and see what the big boys drive.  There were three pick-ups in the entire "Currency lot" on Canal, near the CME.  Most of those drivers are in Tony's income bracket, I believe.  When Tony got pulled over, had no insurance (no joke), expired license, and syringes on the floorboard of the passenger seat, what junkbox was he driving ?  LOL

They handle $800k-$1MM on their Monday, which is their biggest card...

Would have to think it's a little less today -- pools probably a little less/similar to a Maywood Monday, if I had to guess.

Not good for 15 races. 50 to 60 k a race combined pools. Horrible. Not good for the gamblers but the purse money is good.

     That's why harness racing is a dead game laddie for the gamblers.

I'll remember this when I'm chucking at the $400k per race bet at the Big M.

Nothing says dead like a $100k Pick 4 with a 15% take Wink

I'll be right there when the Big M. opens. Been waiting since Aug. It's the ONLY HARNESS track left where the gamblers can make some real money because there's money in the pools to be won.

    I pray that the Big M. will not be destroyed like all the other tracks have been.

    That's why I say " IT'S A DEAD GAME LADDIE " for the gamblers everywhere else except at the Big M.

     The gamblers could care less what the purses are. All they want is big pools. Only the horseman give a shit about slot revenue. Slot revenue does nothing for the betting pools.

      GET IT Huh??

Let's not forget about Woodbine either.  They still put up some very good money.

Woodbine does nothing for me. Can't bet on it out here and I'm not a rebate shop bettor. So, all I have is the Big M. for real racing.

     Racing everywhere else is not even related.

In 2004 they averaged $760,000 per day. Approx. $100,000 on track, the remainder from inter-track (simulcast) wagering.

Thanks for the numbers, Paul.  They don't have day-specific handle numbers on their website, so it's tough to guess.

So, they average right above $50k a race.  Not even close to the Maywood Mondays.  That's a tough sell right there.

Just like I said it's no good for the gamblers. The place is only good for the horseman.

    100k on track? Horrible.

    Thanks for the numbers. I'll never bet the place, ever.
