A Moment of Harness Racing Zen - I can't embed the video on my blog, but to me there is nothing like racing on a country track. Plain and simple. Well, they have this type of racing in France as well. While the sound is not the best, click on this link and see a race from a regional track in France, specifically Neuillé Pont Pierre. I find this type of racing relaxing.
In this ADW era, I wonder if racing could survive if we had tracks like this instead of our existing tracks; tracks where people could come relax and wager. I have a feeling operating a race meeting like this would be profitable as the operating expenses would be much less. Let the big gamblers wager on their computers and let those who appreciate racing as a sport first show up at the track.
Let me know, would you wager on races at a track like this and/or would you go to a race meeting like this? I know I sure would. Even watching from home, this racing is so tranquil and a nod to our past.
