1) WHAT WILL THE WIN % OF PENA/GEORGIE NAP BE? OVER/UNDER 40% ( Probally about .300)
2) HOW QUICKLY WILL BURKE TAKE HIS HORSES FROM MATT KAKALEY? OVER/UNDER 2 WEEKS (He will stay with him for a while, but we will see weather the driver colony accepts him)
3)TILL CHESTER OPENS THE DRIVING COLONY SHOULD BE STOCKED:NAP,MORRILL,YANNICK,D.MILLER LEAD THE LIST (Jimbo First, followed by the rest. Pavia Jr. will also be a factor)
4)WILL THE CLAIMING BE HOT AND HEAVY?I SAY YES (Actually less since there will not be a Pa. bonus this year)
5)WILL BE KEEPING MY EYE ON THE PIC 7 POOLS TO SEE WHAT A GOOD INVESTMENT IN THIS WILL BE ( Don't bother, I will be hitting it multiple times)

Same thing happened when he came to N'Field and went to Pompano. Took a little while for folks to catch on that he is both talented and honest.

When Chester opens it will open up more drives for him at Pocono as well, and when Tioga opens, he can head right up Rte 81 where he would be the leading driver if he desired.

He is young and improving fast. Time will tell how good he gets, but I think we will know bt the end of the summer.

I frankly thought the guy was a joke when he first came to Northfield but he improved quick enough through dedication and talent to give me a more positive opinion of him.

Tioga is well suited for him.

can't beat lou right now

better driver colony this year in my opinion, no driver will be near 40%

Matt will be a force to reckon with and the Burke's have a very talented driver at this track driving for them, he will impress

claiming will be strong, especially with those purses

trainers to watch, Laura and Carmine

Actually what happened was, they fired Shane Bacon, and replaced him with Jim who was already employed by the track in a different capacity.
So he became the announcer by default.
You gotta love the guy, but if management really wants to operate a professional track, you need someone who can bring lots of energy during the races, and he's not the one.
Sorry, but that's the facts !!!

Billy Mullin underated trainer at Poconoe clover

His horses win 20-25% there.....5-10% everywhere else.....Every horse he runs in half the price he should be......Every fresh off the claim horse is 6-5......How is he underrated? I will say they are overbet partly because he always uses Morrill on the livest ones
