Woodbine closes their thoroughbred season this weekend.  Some good races on tap including the Valedictorian, but the bigger question is what will 2013 look like?  Some trainers are already looking to move to New York and the season will be shorter, but the track will still be top notch and I won't be able to give up the turf racing there.  Hoping for the best!

In which way will they shorten the season?  Open later?  Close earlier?  Both?  I enjoy watching and playing Woodbine on Wednesday evenings.

...unless you have any more current info.  Yes, I know McSquinty's stepping down, but what's the long-term prognosis there?  Province is broke and needs the revenue.

Right now it looks like Thursdays are going to go away, but I sense things are still fluid.  In order to maintain purse levels close to 2012, they are going to have to cut back dates.  Hopefully not too many.
