I really enjoy the BC but I wouldnt be surprised if its gone in a few years. As you all have heard the BC basically holds the host track for ransom. Unless they change their "tactics" no one will bid for it in the near future. And to pull the petty bs they have started against the NYRA is reason to question their intentions. BC Friday aka Ladies Day is a joke. To even call 50% of those races a BC race is an insult to all of us,the professional gamblers that we are. And this year its 3 card monty time on Friday.
Take a look at the schedule. How many will show up for the Zenyatta circle jerk? 15K ?
Her races are startng to remind me of that fake HR game in Vegas that goes in a circle and you bet a 1.00 to win 3.75. Oh and btw, I'll be there @ 8 am on Sat to get our VIP reserved table to witness my boy Einstein............... (aka Big Cap Winner ) rip off Rip Van Stinkle's head in the Classic.In fact send over Mastercrackerjack too.
I'll have CNAK aka AngryMan box you in in the 2nd flight. Lets see how you do with Kieran" aka prison stripes" Fallon going airborne over the rail? I've just got back from the Mojave desert near my Alcapa ranch and I have enough snake juice for all of our horses.
One more thing use Frankie Dettori in every exotic.
With Much Love,

Some of the well known international sites will be inserted into the rotation, then only a few Americans will participate, but it will be a World Champions day. Maybe ShaTin, Dubai, and one of them English or French joints.
It'll be perfect for TVG cuz they can show them on tape delay.
And remember...Things work out best when you make the best of the way things work out.
Bc Friday is a class-war joke.........Not only are the majority of the races sub world class,they are held on FRIDAY,thus ,discounting MILLIONS of working class fans who cant take off work.This is utter BS. ALL grade 1 s in america are run on WEEKENDS or holidays,save the one or two that pop up at saratoga or del Mar(at least in vacation season).If you are a valued customer all year,the BC SCREWS you by running the ladies classic on a work day........the only thing morre insane would be to run our world series on fake synthetics 2 years in a row.Er,wait,that is happening....ugh!
That BC two years back on the East Coast at Monmouth was tremendous wasn't it?
I think this year will be a tremendous weekend of racing. I argue that this year's edition will feature as many stars of racing that any year has going for it. Sure, some big horses are skipping, or being retired, or what have you. Every year some horses miss for some reason or another. Every race on both days looks wide open with many, many excellent Euro horses(probably much more than any other year) will make great showings AND provide tremendous bets either for or against. Weather hopefully will be ideal, and in the end analysis, this year's event of two super days of racing will be highly anticipated by MOST horse racing fans, both casual and S.G.'s(sick gambler's like myself).
This year there was around 111,000 on track for Oaks day, but who's counting. However, L'ville basically treats the day as a holiday so that makes sense. I don't think they will make Ladies Day a holiday around town next year if they keep the two day format. Needs to go back to one day in my opinion.
disclaimer...I have to work on Nov. 6th...and can't take that day off.
