Thanks for posting, even though it was 47 years ago, I can still remember Roger White
with Score Time and Timely Knight   Can you remember the trots on Friday?  And
the mares on Thursday?   I have been blessed and honored to see all the great ones
from 1963 on pass through Sportsmans---IT WAS THE PLACE TO BE IN THE SUMMER

bpf,
       I could go on for hours about how the racetracks missed the boat, but basically it
comes down to non-promotion of the product, the expansion of many other forms of
gambling, and internally and horse industry wise the invention of full card simulcasting
and OTB parlors, which dlluted the house product immensely. Having been around as long
as I have , plus my background in many phases of the business, I believe I am qualified
to speak my opinion

The handle for those two races, today, would each be over $800k in current, adjusted dollars.
