Try making some sense Colonel Drunky John !  Oh, and you are closed with your stupid comments painter boy.  Perhaps that acute addiction to turpentine fumes has left your judgement permanently impaired...  hope this isn't an insult.  Still, all in all I like your style when you actually talk racing, so ask your fellow t-bred side members if we can trade that goof Richard Breth for you.  nwaryas says you've become quite the harness capper lately.  Grin   trotter  TC

Thank you for the offer, but we had been successfully dealing with John and his threats all on our own.

No problem Terry.  I like all who love racing.  You guys seem to really like racing.  I am not trying to be condescending when I say that i have always felt sorry for Chitown folks not having the big leagues as far as racing goes.  Over in the message board I frequent the most, some of the most passionate and knowledgable guys(as well as pure lovers of the sport) are from Chitown.  I know you guys love sports as much as any city in the USA, including NYC.  I'm not putting down Arlington(went there for the 2002 BC, my first and only visit to Chicago), but I'm sure with the finest in sports teams thats its goitta be tough not to have racing on a par with Ny's and Cali's in your own town.  Never understood why but I guess its just a simple fact that racing has polarized to the two coasts and you guys are kinda in the middle.

How did quality of racing suddenly get in the discussion about John Frank?Huh

I do appreciate your concern for Chicago fans, and I know some here do fret we don't have big league racing except a few weekends a year. However, it doesn't bother me, what's more I don't care in the least about the racing on either coast except that it is there to kill time at the simulcasts during the winter when our live racing is down. So, no need for you to feel sorry for me personally.

Terry, good post.  You needn't have to downplay the role AP, Haw, and Spt (RIP) play/played in shaping racing on a national scale.  The Million, Hawthorne Gold Cup, and even the IL Derby helped shape the KY Derby, Breeder's Cup Classic, and other races.  Last time I checked, horses like Black Tie Affair, Awesome Again, War Emblem, and others made IL their pit stop to immortality.  I'm no fan of Tricky Dicky Thrall, but AP is the finest LIVE facility of its kind.  Plant-wise, it's right there with Kee, Dmr, Sar, GP, and the rest.  Those places face the countryside, ocean, etc. and not the Rolling Meadows Courthouse, but who's looking there ? (OK bad point)  The bottomline is that good races take place here every year and we all would be in hog heaven IF Rosemont and its racing cut would have been on-line by now.  Blame that she-devil Lisa "comfortable shoes" Madigan for hurting IL racing.

I agree Arlington is a wonderful track, and I do know we have a few good. meaningful weekends and races per year of racing. Oracle80 was talking about something different, like at a Santa Anita spring or Belmont fall or Saratoga meet, and there's names horses and big stake running every weekend if not every day.

I don't blame Lisa Madigan for the Rosemont casino debacle. I blame the greedy "businessmen" and politicians who put that stinking deal together, with all their secret agreements for shares and political support, and cutting in shady characters, all to line their own pockets with helping racing only a side excuse. Even Mr. D, the man of vision, who you'd think would be right there fighting for the good of racing, only agreed to give his political support to the deal in exchange for a secret share of the casino from the Flynns (according to his testimony and the news stories). When a dead fish deal like this floats to the surface and stinks even too much for Illinois, it was badly done to begin with, and didn't deserve to go forward.

One other note: The New York and California tracks and racing programs got where they are today without the benefit of their own dedicated casino to prop them up.
