Last week's CT numbers still not out but they will be big, I'm guessing $8.5MM or so. (Labor Day week.) However, the week ending tonight will not be so good. Business a little slow all week, then last night a shockingly small Friday night crowd. Very bad weather in the area, numerous tornados around, really kept them away. No racing didn't help either. CT seemed dead, lacking the ususal "electricity in the air" feel of a weekend night. Maybe we can make it up tonight, weather will be good, as people who stayed away last night come out tonight.
My sources tell me the track problem is sinkholes, as has been posted. Now wet weather is delaying repair. Its disappointing though, after spending $8mm ($1MM over budget, incidentally) to prevent losing dates to bad weather. A small lapse in competency by CT manaagement.
