  • Moving sideways to a up some over the last 6-12 months. PE ratio has gotten ahead of expected earnings growth, seems fully valued. Yet I have a large capital gain built in, have no reason to sell and take a tax hit with money market type investments yielding .1- .4%. Putting it in even a short term bond fund seems ridiculous, given rising rates will quickly wipe out a years worth of 1-2% yield.

    So here I sit on it, hoping for the best. A longer term holder I will be lol.

  • Handle up modestly - attendance remains stong. The ceaseless rain has caused many turf races to be moved to dirt; they need balls to either run the stakes races on good/yielding turf, or allow them to be delayed a day in hopes for better conditions (say, Saturday Sunday) or you will see even fewer decent shippers come for these races. $75,000 and $100,000 stakes races with scratches down to 6 and 7 horse fields, now on dirt, make for poor betting ,weak handle and reduced interest from simulcast bettors.

    I personally like to see the fewer MN bred restricted overnite races carded. Let the claimers continue to run with open company for a higher tag, makes for fuller fields and varied betting possibilites. One need only look a typical Prairie Meadows card to see dreary racing- 1/3 to half of races Iowa breds only, few open races of decent quality, leading to multitudes of non-winners/low claiming price races all too prevalent in US racing today.
