The owner of Art Official is claiming their horse is better than Somebeachsomewhere. Personally, I think he should calm down and examine the facts. That being said, Dean from Pull the Pocket responds much better than I can. Take a look at his entry, It says it all.
Also, the drivers for Tioga Downs popular driving championship (August 2) will be determined this weekend. The top seven money earning drivers nationally, the leading money earning driver at Tioga Downs, and a sponsor's exception compete in a series races preceded by a meet and greet with the fans at noon and a Yannick Gingras bobblehead giveaway before the six race series gets under way.
Not only are the fans treated by seeing the nation's best drivers, the drivers enjoy it too. The track puts up $45,000 in prize money for this championship so the winning driver takes home $25,000; second place $5,000; third place $4,000. The other drivers doesn't go home empty-handed as the other drivers get $1,500 just for competing.
Jeff Gural and his staff is to be commended for offering the driving championship and other promotions which are customer friendly. Other tracks can learn a lesson in promotion from the team at Tioga
