Personally, I like the fact that the races are earlier than the 10 pm hour, so if you can carve out time from 8 to 9, you should see some good races with some fast times.

In other news, SportsNet NY (SNY) announced that they will air live racing from The Meadowlands on Thursdays beginning January 26 and going through March 9  The plan calls for three live races each broadcast with analysis, insights and interviews.  The races will be produced by Meadowlands TV and will use their announcers and handicappers.  If you watched the Breeders Crown on SNY back in October, you know that production will be top rate and in HD.  We can all watch races on our phones and through live streams, but there is always value to watching a real telecast with on-air talent giving you insights and information.

See you at the races!
