Good gawd, Dave Zenner owes you a double-saw for that little puff piece.
If you're denying that AP puts on a good racing show for Million Day, you're even less intelligent than I previously thought.
When was the last time YOU paid a premium admission price at AP, just to stand in endless lines to buy beer, and then again, later, to give it back?
The only time I've ever experienced conditions as you describe was BC Day. Never had serious line problems at any other time in the past, either Million Day or Cigar Day. No worse than any other track on one of their "big" days.
Never attended any of the goofball AP "family" days I can remember except one 4th of July. As for the last time I paid a premium admission at AP, probably that same BC, because pretty much all the other years I was in Illinois in the summers to visit AP I had an owner's license and got in free.
