Weekend Stakes Action

This weekend, there are three stake races of note on the card. At Georgian Downs is the Upper Canada Cup for 3yos. Pocono Downs features the Max Hempt stakes for 3yos. Lastly for the 3yo fillies is the Courageous Lady stakes at Northfield Park. Do you think there are other races this weekend of note?

Lastly, can someone tell me why tracks like Windsor, Georgian Downs, and Fraser Downs make their programs available free on the web why other tracks make you buy them? Seems like these tracks can teach the big boys something.

First, Congrats Pacingguy on starting your blog. Hope you're very successful in your venture.

Second, it would seem that more of the "smaller" US tracks would take the lead of the smaller Canadian tracks by putting free programs on their web pages.
I have used this "perk" several times, especially when Stakes or major races are being run. This perk not only helps the patrons, but would only improve track handle one would think.
At my home track, I have asked this question and they didn't even know this was being done in Canada. Still waiting to get an answer, stay tuned.

Lastly, the Maxie Lee eliminations featuring some of the best trotters in the country including Lucky Jim are being run on Sunday at Chester Downs, races 8 and 10.

I wish everyone one a safe and profitable Memorial Day weekend and remember the people that makes our country so great.
