Isn't there some kind of law on the books that states you have to have the last race "go off" before Midnight the NIGHT of racing. There was a long delay of roughly 30 minutes earlier in the card but how can they race til 12:20 AM?

There is no rule anymore.When there was a rule it was ignored (except to have the wrong time on the tote board).In the early 90's betting would close at midnight,but when full simulcasting came in,it was made clear that racing and wagering could continue past midnight.When Maywood and Balmoral had dual simulcasting,the races frequently went til past 12:30 AM.

One cold, snowy January Saturday night a few years ago we won the last race (went off a little after midnight) and the horse would not piss. Absolutely had no interest in it. This was a horse who would normally piss within 5 minutes of getting to the spit box.

Not this night.  Tried him on straw, tried him on shavings, whistled to him forever, walked him around the completely empty paddock, he drank 2 full buckets of water in 2 1/2 hours before he finally peed. Luckily we didn't have to wait for blood, because this was when they were doing the random pre-race blood tests. Didn't get out of there until almost 3, and it was light out by the time we got home.

The State people were very understanding - you could tell they'd been through this before thumbs up

Kinda ruined Sunday, but we won a race so I'm not complaining! beer
