Bonus TrackNotes:

* E-mail from Tom Chambers, our man on the rail:

If you haven't finished recording the podcast yet . . . (we were in the midst of it):

Several tracks are closed tomorrow because of the heat.

-> Saratoga closed. Feature was to be the Coaching Club American Oaks (Grade I, 3-year-old fillies, $500,000). They hope to open Sunday and run it then.

-> Not sure as of now if Monmouth, on the Jersey Shore, is going to close, although I hope they do. Not sure how much of a shit they give. The Haskell Invitational (Grade I, 3-year-olds, $1,000,000). Forecast is for 95+ degrees.

These are the other closings as of now: Belterra Park, Delaware Park, Ellis Park, Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack, Laurel Park, Parx Racing.

Later from Tom:

Maldonado just framed a K!

With these umps, need that.

Is he any relation to Candy?

Not Candy Ride. He's a horse. Bred in Argentina and he's a happy stud up here.
