Monmouth: Not Even Earl is a Lock


You know you're having a bad day when you can't even get the weather right. It Looks like Hurricane Earl has made an exit, stage right, and will miss the northern portion of the Jersey Shore, spinning out toward the Atlantic just as it was approaching Seaside Heights, according to the map at Accuweather.com. Now, that may or may not exactly be true, but it does make sense that he got a look at Snooki and crew and changed his plans.

If this threat of rain is indeed past us we do have an excellent Labor Day weekend lined up, in terms of the weather. Sunshine, low humidity and competitive racing will mark the last weekend of the Elite Meet, though racing continues here, sans Fridays, right into November.
