We had a downpour in the 7th race.

In the 9th race the starting gate was slipping and sliding to an extent that it interferred with 4 horses which all got a refund including the heavy favorite Romance In Camelot. It was initially a 8 horse field with one scratch. The race was reduced to 3 horses.

I'll post the video as soon as it is up.

This incident reminded me of the Freehold starting gate accident.

They did the right thing in cancelling the remainder of the 3 races.

No need to take any risks.

Garbage 2 wheel drive junk.
These tracks don't care and they wonder why there is little interest.

They should not use cars.  They don't in Sweden.  It is a wonderful thing.

They should have cancelled race 9 entirely.  In 2007 there was a similar mishap in a race at Cal Expo and the horse I wagered on was not interefered and won at 2-1 and I had 100 on it and they said it was a non race.
