Vernon schedule is out and some big changes. Only 70 race dates and post time at 6:10pm. Gural getting closer to getting it to 50 race dates that he wants dropping from 90 days.

It is also what the industry can support.

Pure SHIT HOLE.



Actually it is one of the best landscape and physical plant settings in the country for harness racing. Too bad it is in the middle of nowhere and they race absolute amish has beens. It is a direct reflection of a dying sport in every way.

The only 2 turn track in the state. It is quite valuable to the state breeding program.

The power Of Joe. Now the power of Joe and Ford and Bluechip... But, to show off the breed and give a solid opportunity to all on the final races, it should be on a track that does not play so much favor to inside speed.

Good horsemen will tell you that the track surface is consistently the best in the country.
It is the best maintained track............ ..their trackman and his team ,work on the track dailey

The track is never muddy............ ...........they prepare it for the rain...and condition it after the rain stops .

The trackman is often accused of putting too much water on the track on race nights........... but the horses love the surface..and you rarely see a lame horse, who races there every week
In his defense, one night at Vernon, years ago , the track had been heavily watered.......... .and a regular driver, trying to impress the top flight drivers who were there for some stake races....commente d " he puts too much water on this track"

Hearing this , one of the visiting drivers quickly answered, "you can't put too much water on a good track".......his name ??????

It was never muddy because it was hard as a rock! It was like racing on a road. They water it so much to keep the dustcloud down.
