             you can blame the people who took the original deal when simulcasting began for the situation horsemen are in now . the track has too much leverage now ! a strike does'nt nearly hurt them as much as it does the horsemen . the bettors will just find another track to bet on and the track will survive with simulcasting . I really doubt if similcasting never happened the horsemen would be in the shape their in today ! when there was'nt any simulcasting the purses and handle was fine . harness racing seemed like it was going uphill , instead since it began racing has year by year went downhill . off track places opened and then the stands emptied out year by year . it just seems to me that the horsemen at that time when they took the deal , did'nt foresee the future ! but then again there not lawyers or business men ! there horsemen ! they needed good representation at that time which they did'nt have obviously . so now what do they do ? maybe someone has an answer ? there in a real bad situation ! strike the little guy starves and might be out of the business ! settle for peanuts and race ! not much of a choice . the holidays may be happy for those of us that are no longer involved in the business , but for those of you that are I sincerely hope things work out for you and you have a nice holiday season and not dwell on the problems which are in the future of racing in illinois . and for the rest of us who argue with each other about some silly topics and get to personal with each other with verbal attacks ! I really believe we should all use the golden rule more often . good luck to all gambling and racing in 2006 .            RTP
