One Turn

- -

The New York Racing Association announced that they’re rebuilding the Wilson Chute at Saratoga. I wish I could ask Allen Jerkens what he thinks. 

I do remember it being revitalized in the early 90s and it didn’t work very well. Rough races. Short fields. If I remember correctly. 

Will a mile option continue the demise of proper two-turn route races? Surely, can’t help. 

I did write a story a few years ago about using two wires like they do at Keeneland. It didn’t go far. 

I wish they would refurbish Horse Haven, that would be the best thing for the horses, offering an option to horses looking for an easy day, providing a break from the Oklahoma or the main track. I wrote about that, too.
