Hey Dogs.Growing up in Ireland , we always left whiskey and plum pudding for Santa.I guess he was trying to sober up by the time he hit the US,so the milk might help.

Maybe Derby runs late, but NYRA runs the Belmont Stakes at sister track Saratoga which would already be running their dates. Churchill would run a five day card into Derby.

Preakness perhaps share the spoils with a track running their dates two weeks after Derby make up date.

Belmont Stakes would have the exception of not run on 2 turn mile + half course.

The prices are 'same in that even if a pool is lower than usual or higher...the divisor(s) used to pay the betting pattern based on odds. Simplified if 100 players bet the same way with their $100 as $1,000 the pay prices would be the same for both. The great divisor.

Like it. The whiskey poured gets to prove with a shot of Holiday cheer that Santa visited and downed some heart warmer whiskey.When the children wake up in the morning in Ireland they witness Santa drank the whiskey. 

Santa's here in the US are portrayed as Department store Santas that are habitual drinkers.

Huge hit financially if its an empty venue.

whales, computer wagering teams (CWTs) and fans the world over bet into the pools via computers. 

Ditto every other track.......that's why tracks are so empty now (except Oaklawn and a few others)

Horses don't need a live audience to race in races.  


Oaklawn has closed their casino temporarily, but is still running races w/out spectators.  Yes, track loses concessions and stufff like $2 parking and their many restaurants (3 in the casino + 4 bars in the casino) and about 5 concessions and 3-4 restaurants on the racing side.  

But the more I think about this, if horses are still racing, and earning purses, then the backside workers and trainers and vets still get paid...reality is that even with no racing horses require 24/7 care.........humans will not die if they can't eat out in restuarants or go to horse races. 

So I am not totally unhappy about keep them racing without spectators.  Somebody has to feed these animals and care for them

I actually leave sugar cubes on my racing form the night before*; like leaving cookies and cocoa for Santa.

I absolutely love this.  :)

Art Sherman would live in the stall of his favorite horse and his son would be his runner
