Will the Isle Of Capri dispose of harness racing completely?  The return of the disastrous quarter-horse racing may indicate just how little control the horsemen have here.  With the continuous failure of slots here, I get the feeling that Isle could refuse harness racing completely once they see the advantages of quarter-horses with smaller purses & fewer headaches.

Once these tracks get the slots the harness races are OVER. They just have to wait a couple of years and then slowly fade them out. And still make more money than before.
