Why do they have such small fields at SA? No wonder Baffert's win rate is so high. That and his earnings are skewed.
Racing/gambling horses is a zero sum game. Unlike other sports.
Racing is shrinking.
Yields small fields.
Yields less racing dates.
Yields closure of tracks.
Yields smaller crop sizes.
Yields less newcomers. States allow sports betting by phone now.
Yields greater corruption.
People here and elsewhere are highly critical and disgusted on the game as it is illegally and immorally played, manipulated. Drugs. And those motives.
The digital age has antiquated racing. Other sports not. New generations don't have racing on their to do list.
Not a social game for the social media and conscious society.
