Aqueduct: When will the stupidity stop?


A seven-minute delay caused by Iguazu running loose around Aqueduct in the third race, backed up post times so that Aqueduct's fifth and Gulfstream's fourth went off about 22 seconds apart. Guess that's why God gave horseplayers two eyes.

 Seriously, isn't there someone in power at either track that has television in their office and a cellphone that can see that this is ncredibly stupid. Can't someone in power contact someone at the gate and say ``Gulfstream about to go off'' take another turn.'' or ``Aqueduct about to go off, take another turn.''

On a day when Oaklawn and Turfway Park canceled thier cards --- and really any ay --- to have the East Coast's two premier winter signals running races at the same exact time is STUPID. So stop doing it.
