1) the meadowlands is finished - about 1-2 years ago
2) Gural will never be able to get the meadowlands
3) Gural will never work it out with the unions to get the meadowlands operational


and a good one from this winter:

1) there will be no racing in Ontario in 2013
2) there will be no racing at Mohawk in 2013


And one I just saw on the forum today

"Gural must bring back Pena"


The funniest thing is that all these things are said with a certainty that is just imbecilic.

There are many who don't want the game to succeed. I guess that's the way it is.
Same thing with Hockey. Every strike/lockout, they say the sport is done, and more fans and sponsors come back and the game does better than it did before.

I am not posting this response to start a debate. We can agree to disagree.
I dont know exactly what you mean by the term "open window", however, If you are referring to the fact that betting/cancelling bets at CERTAIN TRACKS is not going on several seconds after a race starts, than I think you guys are mistaken. I have not seen it at all in Canada tracks, or at M1 (last few years). I think you guys are mostly harness guys but I follow both games very close, watch tons of races, bet many tracks.
It can not be some freakish cooincidence that the horses in the first 4 positions odds drop at CERTAIN TRACKS. Horses in the T-breds that dwelt at gate and are 3-1 become 5-1...when they win you are ahead of the game...I realize that, however odds are the horses in the "first flight" drop..

good post at this point we will agree to disagree
it is possible ? of course anything is possible
is it as prevalent as some claim ? has not been proven to my satisfaction
those i have read that proclaim their prevalence have turned out to be the biggest liars i have ever come across in my life
i also follow both breeds probably not to your extent by do follow both
there can be delays in the info being transferred from point a to point b over the phone lines
we all know the betting system is not as technically sophisticated as it could be because a lack of funds and uniformity between the tote systems
imo if this was as prevalent as stated by some the uproar would be worse than the doping going on

I forgot to add one additional point...I am not trying to convince you..just making a point. Ever see a store or anyone selling something having different "rules" depending on the customer? If I buy $100 worth of stuff and use it...I try to get a refund and they say no...but another guy who spends $100,000's tries to refund something...and they let him...think that doesnt or cant happen? Canada has a fair start rule, many other tracks dont...if you are a huge customer making a bet see your horse break...think theres a chance you can get the bet cancelled?

of course i have said anything is possible but my problem is veriable proof it is going on in a large scale as claimed
every track has huge bettors but to the major traacks like cd sa bel etc what is the benefit ?  and are we reall supposed to believe that it goes on at these track and everyone is keeping their mouth shut and not get caught doing it ?
somehow according the tales it is the huge bettors especially do it but none of the tellers are doing it and getting caught doing so
