Outstanding? A website which provides links to old news? Makes no sense to me but whatever floats your boat.

Geez, their layout is virtually the same as the Drudge Report for national and international news.

 I agree with harry (choke-choke, gag-gag), the major search engines will not provide any ranking weight to this new website when the majority of its links are outbound (to other websites), rather than utilizing their own unique harness racing content.

 Thus, what's the benefit?

Credit where credit is due... they did have the scoop on "Nero" and "Broadcaster B" being precocious 2yos, and they recently reported, quite correctly,  the Nixon '72 landslide.

I was thinking the same thing a site that copies off of everybody else , won't be long before that site is shut down due to copyright infringement.

FWIW, it's perfectly acceptable to an excerpt from an article (i. e., fair use) and provide a URL link to another website.

The way I look at it is it benefits the other sites. It gives exposure to sites people are not familiar with every site and that is a good thing, especially if there is some good discussion.

 Sam,
        In way is it promotion of the sport.
The site simply and temporarily deters visitors from reaching their eventual destination.

 You want links?
Here's the three biggest harness racing traffic sites in North Americal

Save for the charts that some of these sites provide, the rest is all basically press releases, endless decades of which have done the sport little if any good.

Me too !!!  although I love the idea.....it is just not "credible" when linking itself to forums.   I like to take 1 issue and expose it.....   small batches of information is far more effective for getting a point across...  Have a beard of the week site....and give CREDIBLE proof they are beards....

 
H o r s e p l o p is the worst harness forum .  Some posters are not fans....they are idiots.....end of story...The name is so stupid too....... 

 BTW is 100% better IMO   trophy

This beard site is as stupid as its name and should be shut down.

i almost fell off the chair when I clicked on the link "CARLSON CONTINUES TO LIGHT UP TOTEBOARD AT MEADOWLANDS" it took me to Nanc e's site where Nanc e  shows his wisdom by explaining in detail how the open window works at the BigM.

In short he says that when a long shot hits in the 1st leg of the pick 4 they start punching in the tickets (after the 1st leg race is over mind you) WINNER ALL ALL ALL

What a bunch of crock or should I say crooks.
