Headlines For August 8th

Concussions force Michelle Ranford on the sideline for the rest of the 2007 season.

Fort Erie lowers the bar and writes $3000 claiming races. And horses who run for $3000 most likely won't get claimed because they aren't worth $3000, and if a horse isn't worth $3000 he or she should be retired, since it costs between $1500 to $2000 a month to keep these has beens in training. $3000 races really cheapen the track, but also look bad on those who enter in the races. And I can't see the public lining up to bet on 6 horse fields of ultra cheap horses.

Buffalo casino a huge mistake for Buffalo. But nobody said Buffalo was full of rocket scientists.
