"The dates proposals from Arlington and Hawthorne overlap and will need to be reconciled. The major issue, however, is likely to be the awarding of simulcast revenue for dates when there is no live racing in the Chicago area.

Arlington has asked for that revenue for the period from Jan. 1-Feb. 28. Hawthorne has requested the money from Jan. 1-Feb. 13, with a request to begin live racing Feb. 14."


This is interesting:

"Arlington chairman Richard L. Duchossois said this year's decision will be "a game-changer for the industry–up or down," but declined to elaborate regarding the Churchill Downs Inc.-owned track's plans."

Yeah, the old dustfarter "declined to elaborate"...because he's BLUFFING.

IRB is smarter now, hip to RLD's tricks and posturing.

The only thing RLD needs to worry about being "up or down" are those groovy yellow socks he wears while out on his yacht, the aptly named Preside Over Decline.

The Great Karnak sees in the envelope ... a few of the winter simulcast dates the IRB took away from AP going back to them. The horsemen complaining about money paid to stakes purses. But not much else.

Saw two of BTW's most beloved characters, JOD and Mr. D, in a long discussion in the paddock before the Futurity on Saturday.  The conversation started the moment Mr. D entered the paddock and continued long after all the horses and horsemen had left for the race.  Mr. D did not get to talk to anyone else.

Maybe the racing dates were part of the discussion.  Anybody know what O'Donnell is doing these days?  He looked important in the paddock.

Probably exchanging gossip about Frank Calabrese.

Dan, to get some real inside information, you need one of those Bell & Howell Silver Sonic XL Personal Sound Amplifiers, as seen on TV.

"The Bell + Howell Silver Sonic Xl Has The Ability To Give You Sonic Hearing, Easily Amplifying Sounds Up To 90 Feet Away.
