Not Thrilled With the Big M Changes

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” – George Bernard Shaw

Last week the Meadowlands acquiesced to horsemen concerns and made some changes; changes that look a lot like yesteryear. The biggest of the moves involve the abolishment of mile and one eighth races, and a return to the old condition sheet; bettors will not see 12 horse fields going an extra 220 yards, and drop and pops are back in vogue (hey, I don’t blame you too much horsemen, the drop and pops can pay my bills for a month, too).
