Almost as a rule, any thread on this board which has exclamation points in the title will be astoundingly underwhelming.

NEVER !!!!
They will have a fancy new bet with a $5 minimum and a 40% takeout. You will have to bet $200 just for a small shot and for a concelation you get free tube of ky so it doesn't hurt that bad when you leave. Shocked

Never mind that. 

I just want to see that new harness attachment that lowers a horse's time by 3 seconds.

Don't sneeze or you will miss the race. Pocono Downs is already the fastest track in the country.

I'm anticipating something like this:

Due to an overwhelming lack of interest in our product as evidenced by handle, Pocono Downs will no longer offer live racing.  Instead, grass growing will become the new primary attraction.  We anticipate a large increase in attendance and interest and have taken steps to accomodate large crowds.  No longer will three people have to endure 97 races every racing day.  Gone are the days of combined mutuel pools of $12,000 on races with purses of $30,000.  It is with great excitement that we move forward in this new era. 

Sincerely,
Pocono Management

Harrahs home of diarrhea and maybe 50 fans on the weekend....and Dover Downs ( will we ever get 10 live people to watch our races?) .....
