Arlington has a change of their dark hearts to allow fanless racing this summer, so big of them-NOT!

I hope they at least get a 30-day meet.  And horses need to be on the track training - now.

I feel badly for these horsemen.  I hope they get the track open soon.

The sticking point

The ITHA has asked that Arlington sign a one-year contract, schedule at least a 30-day race meeting without stakes races, and open its backstretch 30 days before racing starts.

"They have agreed to all that," ITHA executive director David McCaffrey said after talks broke down. "They won't agree to it unless there's a second year attached to it. That's where it all gets garbled."

Can't blame them for asking for a second year.
