Christmas Eve Racing and a Likely Snub

For those people looking for racing action tomorrow, Monticello Raceway is the only track in the United States racing.  Of course, you'll need to find a simulcast location or an ADW operating tomorrow.  Why does Monticello race on Christmas Eve Day?  It is all part of their plan to optimize their simulcast signal.  By being the only track racing on Christmast Eve, they usually pull in a huge handle. 

Our friend Dean over at Pull the Pocket writes about a fictional holiday party with a bunch of bloggers including myself.  It may be a fictional party but Dean has my character down pat.  Go take a look and you'll see what I mean. 

On Christmas Eve and Christmas, TVG will be showing their 2009 Year in Review show several times.  Want to bet how many harness racing highlights make the show?  My guess is we get snubbed.  I realize standardbred racing is the poor cousin on TVG but if they can't find the way to at least include the Hambletonian on their highlight show, shame on them.
