    • I hear ya reallysure2000, It will be unreal, the amount of $ PNRC, will bring in for PENN, when the slots arrive...I would say PNRC doubles CT's take...trainers are already lining up for stalls at PNRC..their purses should average 20 or better..CT's problem is it's short track (Bull Ring), it burns horses up..hard on the joints..the masses are waiting for the golden gates to open at PNRC.. a mile oval, and beatiful, peaceful, country side type living..could't raise a family at a better place..

      • Guys I agree with both of you but this is one of the many reason's why the track at CT is getting a overhaul. One thing I will say is that CT has kept the track a tad slow on purpose I track all there races and no this is a fact. My good friend made a comment last week to me that this quility of horse is racing for way to much money I advised him the bigger the purse the better the slot are doing because the horsemen get a peace of that money,unlike MNTG who run 6 $4000.00 claimers a night CT quility runners are on the up. Another thing that I have noted this year is very few horse have made the trip to CT ran well that goes for shippers from Kentucky also. As usual the Tampa horses are winning everywhere and there sucess has been good at CT.

        The way thing are at CT is a win win for everybody there bringing more and more quility in with each card and its really starting to show in Maryland with there small fields. I suspect if PA passes slot you will see light go up on the PENN turf course and being a night signal there handle will double with more quility runners. Last week I was reading on the CT website that there was a 23 way shake on a $5000.00 claimer named Bibbyie thats was a record. well no wonder those run for $19000.00 purse you run second and you have made your money back.
