Ummm...... What an incredible cruddy list.

Outside of Keeneland, anybody want to bet on the broken down nags that run for 2k on these other so called top ten tracks? Who can place a wager on the old washed up, the never was, or never will be? Even Churchill, they like to have the 5k claimer every other race. Outside of Derby Day, Churchill is almost as unbetable as the rest of these broken down tracks.

By your incredibly naive criteria,if I take a dump in a box and take bets on it and only takeout 5% on the handle, I would be number on eon your list, even though I was making number 2.

Me.

My ROI on cheap claimers was 1.11 last year, better than grade one's which I got killed on. Physical appearance and trainer angles I do more than fine with at small tracks.

Just because you dont like something does not mean another player has to not like it as well.

"By your incredibly naive criteria"

Horseplayers have takeout field size and wager variety as very important metrics. This is not a belief or an opinion, it is reality.

If your criteria is different that is fine. However, telling players that the price they are charged or that 5 horse fields do not matter is simply incorrect.

I would submit to anyone who thinks this untrue to start a racetrack, offer 35% takeouts, 5 horse fields, with win betting only. Then check your profit/loss statement at the end of the year. Let us know how you did.
