Ha ha look at this! This podunk track has to resort to $1 day to get fans. It also sells its two tacos for $4.25, and that includes pico de gallo PLUS salsa packets. What a bush league operation compared to Arlington.

No idea. Track rule or local ordinance, perhaps.

Since it was Budweiser, it might have been for health reasons, too.

Eat enough of those and you'll get a coronary. That said, tossing a taco in a deep fryer is so delicious.

Did you simulcasters pay attention today?

At Pimlico they held up the live race card for an hour + in the middel of the card
to conduct  a Darryl Worley concert.   
The races would not be run until the show was over.

A new take on I went to the track and a Country Act broke out.  Tongue

Nothing personal against Mr. Worley and his fans but come on!
This was the last thing I was expecting during my simulcasting trip.
Sooner the racing is over, the better.   
I'd assume many of those at Old Hilltop felt frustrated with the delays. 

Why they did not put the stage at a special corner with a special time, is beyond me.   Only at Pimlico.

Well, it is NOW.



This joint here I presumed to be a favorite of those cretins on the harness side political thread.

It was at a really crappy track, much worse than Arlington, that needs to offer the $1 specials to drag in the crowds.

 beer

Most sporting events limits two beers per person at one time.The reason I dont know.
The reason for me would be I would lose almost a full beer trying to carry three at the same time.. beer

You can't really CARRY more than two beers at a time. And they don't want the expense of those beverage holders.

I have a method.  Only once a month and crack off the outside of he tortilla.  Then eat the rest but give a homeless person the second taco.   (we have one outside Jack's)
