The South Florida Racing Journal
There is some kind of a rule here in Florida that forces the thoroughbred tracks to simulcast ALL their thoroughbred races to anyone pari-mutuel who wants them for a fix fee. There has to be something illegal about all this. Who the hell is the state to decide who has control of simulcasting for a fixed fee? Why should Mardi Gras greyhound track, located about 2 miles from Gulfstream Park for example, become competition for the simulcasting dollar?
We think its time Gulfstream Park, took off the gloves and began simulcasting nighttime, after 6 p.m. harness and greyhound and jai-alai. Why should these tracks benefit by going to Mardi Gras or Dania or Miami Jai-Alai or Pompano Harness. The nighttime signals after Santa Anita are weak anyway, so why not show these races?
