Guys they been plowin that shit like there planting potatoes!
I agree jj they should fire who's in charge of the crew and maken those decisions!
Hell they had it harder than asphalt all they had to do I think is scratch it but hellll no they plow it deep so now they got to scrape and screen !
U guys no how I feel about keeping horses safe and I'm sorry for all of u not being able to race and have a chance to make a buck but what the hells another wk when it's been 6 months?
Hay if you see them farm boys plowing it this wk get a bunch of automatic paint ball guns line up on the rail and open fire on them paint ball the holy shit out of them catipillars!

I told my trainer no way in hell I want my trotters on that shit take as long as u need relax!
Pace indoor how's u doing buddy?
Take deep breaths and keep on keeping on !

I heard it was so dang deep they were lookn 4 one of them bush jumpers to pull the gate !
Not good to be spinning broodys with the wings open on a starting gate!
I would have luv to be in that car with Kenny when that crap happens!
He'd have to change those seat covers!
Just glad our meet is putting horses first and drivers safety !

I threw the towel in after opening night, when the track was dry and horses were going in 2:05.

Being they are on TVG I will check them out again when things are not so crazy.

Yeh but so many scratched when it got so muddy and the track was hard the wkb4 racing but on race night it was a potatoe patch!
They keep plowing it like 4 tbreds and now the rain again we are lulled be for iCard again !
I had great hopes when they brought the guy in from Santa Anita but now with continued rain like Santa Anita use to get once in a while I understand why they had so many problems.
We really need a very experienced harness track engineer .this sucks  .
Next thing you know are local krack king swoop knowitall all will be posting the conspiracy theory's ! bang head


Like he thinks we don't score down like other tracks that are chute is for drivers to give race assignments! bang head

Kracker jack most tracks don't have chutes!
It's to relax the horse fool!

U watch tbreds ever?
Japan they have a walking ring b4 the starter calls!

It was like going in the way back machine...seeing the 1:04 haves......I also noticed they were racing about 6 lanes off the rail for the most part.

Yes and if it gets any deeper they going to put mud and snow tires on the bikes.
In fact I wouldn't be surprised if they start getting them monster truck type wheels!
When I saw the one race go in 2.07 I give up!
Trying to race horses is getting so frustrating starting to think the track crew is plowing to plant hay so damn stupid I can't even laugh.
