I'm not entirely sure that the regular citizens in SAR would be excited to have thousands of people come in from LI and Downstate during a pandemic where those particular places had / have high numbers of infection, but you're right, the locals that rely on live crowds will not prosper.
People visit the area for concert series, Lake George, amusement parks, shopping, dining..yes take a big hit..and yes, people visit from all over, many states for weeks.
Locals rent their homes for the whole meet. There is a camping site where the kids stay and the camp site runs buses to and return from the concerts. Pricy hotels. Many locals even use their front yards for parking. I had planned for a few days. But would motel away from epi center.
Days past, my kids would go to swim, fun park. The Holiday Inn wasn't too pricy and talked with trainers that stayed there.
What about testing for Corona positive. And hoof sanitizing?
Right it is an invitational race the Haskell. Also wonder what connections are feeling about setting out in 2020 with their Derby campaign and points needed. Then things went upside down.
"Specious" Dogs had to look the word up. My note says depending on runners in ensuing point races maybe even 8 colts could knock out some of the lower existing point holders among the present 20 as there are many with the same about number of points at bottom of the ladder.
Dogs, i got Husker in a $2 WP @ 4/5. After the race he'll be retired to Spendthrift like Vekoma!!.....LOL
Smarty, Horses get temperature checks in the gate prior to start of race....
Ahhh. I'll bet $100 million (wired hold) to "Place" on me in a Husker 'match race'. No place bets in match race.
But if there were and I did not finish...bridge jump
Husker is definitely not a sprinter, but he can route some. Got game up to 5 miles.
Pick your spot wisely. :)
