Can't they get along with anyone? I think this really shows how much they care (don't care) about their horse racing fans.

Every year this unfortunately happens everywhere around Derby time......Churchill usually tries to boost its signal cost to tracks and threatens to turn off the signal and eventually everything gets righted.......That's what happens when you have a game that 99% people only care about one day a year......Maybe 2 if there is a shot at the Triple Crown

Don't worry, if it does happen they'll be sure to blame everything publicly and entirely on the horsemen, like they always do. Never Arlington's fault in any way.

Don't give them the signal and let them eat $&^% on Derby weekend.

About ADW, we (horsemen) provide the product, but can't share in the profits? Imagine telling Albert Pujols or LeBron James to play for free!

Those guys have union backing. No such thing for horsemen.

Comparing the horseman to Lebron is from another planet.

Not putting anything past AP these days, but it would be truly shocking to see a Churchill Downs owned track not be able to show the Oaks/Derby.

Perhaps the next time RLD is on the Steve Byk show Byk can ask him about this rather than just smooching his ass and referring to him 20 times as "the incredible Dick Duchossois" and yuking it up with him.

Yeah, he's incredible, alright.
