    Here's the question I would ask Mueller. If your mother asked you when you were young, "did you eat the cookies from the jar?" And, you answered "I can't say I didn't eat them." Would your mom think you were innocent? Very few moms would construe that answer as not guilty.

    The only kind of horse racing we can bet on in this weather....

    I read online at Asbury Park Press that “Monmouth Park had planned an 11-race card on Sunday, including the $75,000 Spruce Fir, will be run in its entirety as drawn on Friday, July 26.”

    So if you handicapped the races and the administrator chooses the same races, you’re ahead of the curve for Friday.

    Don't know about any of this but it seems to me that it can't be good for the horses to run in Excessive Heat! Saratoga cancelled their races and Monmouth Park should have cancelled all their races too. Too many horses have died this year, no reason to put these horses in harms way...

    alcalde They're only running for less than two minutes, aren't they?

    Went to MP Saturday with a college friend. I have been going to MP since 1961 and my friend since 1959. What a fiasco. We were shocked by the stupidity of MP's management. Either they should have cancelled the card the prior day or ran the whole card. No horse collapsed in the first two races and it was just as hot on Friday and they ran all races. I know this because I was also there on Friday.

    JudyB Everyone, I was never at all responding to whether or not Monmouth should or should not have cancelled any or all races on Saturday. I was responding to the mismanagement, where they waited until there was outrage from some involved with the races and protesters. By then some customers had taken the time and expense to head out there (I did not go - I live about an hour away & had planned to go). Under the circumstances, I felt that the customers should be considered as well, and not held hostage to spend money they had not intended on products, food and gambling for hours (or just flat out sitting around bored and uncomfortable), or leave and miss the races they came to see. Obviously the conditions were dangerous for the horses and by extension, the jockeys, and seriously unhealthy for the horse caretakers, workers and patrons. My opinion is that they should have cancelled all of Saturday's card on Friday when it became clear that the heatwave was continuing at least through that day.

    It was dropped when Monmouth was having money problems and eliminated some stakes races.This year they got a extra 10 million from state and did not bring it back. I emailed them about it in May never got a replay

    As I drifted off to sleep last night, a phrase popped into my head: "Teddy Drone."

    The Teddy Drone was a sprint run as one of the stakes races on Haskell Day. In googling it this morning, I found it listed on Horse Racing nation. The last running of the Teddy Drone was Haskell Day 2015 (winner was Wildcat Red).

    Does anyone know why the Teddy Drone stakes was dropped from the Monmouth calendar?

    Wondering if any of you vets to the game can help me with this. In the drf under comments, when it says "bumped start, 2p, late fade". What does the 2p stand for?

    Kmicko Gotcha. Thanks Caspat

    I may be breaking news here:

    We have a sponsored race tomorrow for my dad that passed in 2003. They called my sister tonight to let us know racing will be cancelled tomorrow.

    Peace out Kdog and buh bye. You and nets fan can go cry in the corner. Keep your liberal bullshit on your own time with PETA. Everything WAS ok til the president caved to the liberal communist bullshit ranting. He said things were safe after 2 races but your kind cant deal with reality.

    meanmistermustard Never been confused for a lib. EXTREME HEAT ADVISORY!! Bring pets indoors. The elderly and very young should not go outside. The horses? Well we got them fans and those extra hoses, lest we not forget that ocean breeze. So while you're sitting in your living room or on you're porch having a cold one making your piks or bets. The HORSES are MADE to go out there under meds and extreme physical stress. An argument has been made in the past regarding euro horses being adversely affected by the heat here. I doubt you can write off the heat in the performance or well being of these lives. If you can God bless you. NO lib, commie, bs here.

    That Eddie guy was the only completely honest guy on the NBC show. He said he would have made the decision to move the Haskell back a week. Once more, no one mentioned the tellers and patrons were averse to sitting outside in this type of heat. Heat index was 113.
