May 31st race status update

All, Rain continues with predictions that we’re in for more of the same through the rest of the day. This is upstate NY and almost anything can happen, but with this forecast and temperature it becomes difficult to think it possible to have a dry track by 12:30. Today’s racing is cancelled....

Weigh in on Reverse Racing

Thank you to everyone who participated in our email poll to let us know whether you’re interested in racing the track in reverse this season. Results from our initial poll: 8 “Yes” votes 4 “No” votes The board has not yet made a decision on whether/how to schedule reverse racing dates in 2015 — most critically, because we are still awaiting blue bags that would safely support different racing configurations. We also want to carefully consider how reverse racing would impact attendance. So far, we are hearing that a majority of members think it would be fun and challenging to try racing with a new configuration. Yes/no answers are not clearly divided by class. If you have not yet weighed in, please let us know what you think: Pop-Up Poll: Tell us whether you’re interested in racing in reverse this season....
