Hold on for 11 more days and you will have a real racetrack again. 30,000 + on hand to witness the best racing west
of Saratoga Springs. I'm flying in early on opening day and staying till Saturday. In the immortal words of Jets' linebacker,
Bart Scott, "can't wait."
Increase take-out another 3.7% or so. This will ensure that trainers will enter more horses as field size, handle and purses will grow because of the increased take-out.

There are very few real owners anymore that want to really invest in high end horses.
It's must cheaper to run a 5 grand horse , then 25 grand horse and up.
Look at the purses for 5 grand horses, one win, one pays for the horse.
Sharp post as always.
Remember y'all - If you have a horse ready to run, why not wait a few days and run (at DM) in the same class for 25% more purse, or even a class lower for the same purse?
