I was 90 percent sure they would leave it at SA and I am proud that the BC board approved it. 

Running away now after the track is fixed would have sealed the Fate on SA.

The track is fixed as long as they do not experience the monsoon rains they had earlier in the year. This is the right decision, unfortunately a breakdown may happen but not holding the BC would be worse

 My concern is that having the BC at SA will result in a media frenzy:  I expect NBC and other channels to talk endlessly about the 30 horse deaths; that the focus won't be on the great racing for two days. There will be lots of protesters including PETA of course.  If there is one fatal breakdown, well I don't even want to think about that.

Darn it...more to worry about. I hope they take the time to inspect and improve the track.

and other concerns, but i really don't like having the BC there

They do have back up plans but decline to say what it is.

At this point Hollendorfer can enter horses, if he does they will get all the info and decide if can race after reviewing all the facts.

Hopefully SA will have lots of dry weather this summer and the track will improve. I also hope they inspect the track-they certainly have enough time.

thought the Gov just ordereed it shut down,,,,,,but just for now? Ouch for the horses in Breeders Cup,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,would never agree that that is proper,,,,,,,,shut it down forever. I do understand that other tracks have fatalities, too,,,,,,in fact, the only race I ever attended at 
Arlington, a horse dropped dead at the end of his race,,,,,,no attention, CPR,,,,,,,just waited for the truck to drag away,,,,,,,,,,,,,last race for me.....
