How do drivers from the Chicago area now driving in Ohio Miami Valley survive with only getting limited starts and low quality horses Casey's listed on three horses oosting on three horses Todd Warren has four. Even though last year he didnt drive in Chicago and I have not seen anyone else listed how can you survive when you can know at least only one of them horses could be in the money but probably not win .there is a ton of drivers trying to get drives on live mounts in hoosier they did ok but fees for drive minimally paid even smolin couldn't buy beer and smokes on that pay ley alone drive out to ohio for the week have 7 drives and only 1 win 1 show and do all that for what ?

Would it be worthwhile to go to harness tracks being built in Kentucky since they dont go to big m or yonkers or freehold at least kyle husted is and trying to go in circles wear if he gets some chances he could do better his horses at the big m. Most are outclassed and not doing well

Salty much look ive played the Chicago tracks for years take the good with the bad .but other drivers go different places and if not given a chance they go somewhere else everyone has familys and children to take care of what can you do with $150for a week after expenses for travel .if only get 2/3horses a day and race 3days a week on average.

your capital letters seem to indicate that you're angry?  is it a loyalty issue that puts a burr in your undies ?

None of the Illinois drivers earn enough income to cover anything more than a truck payment and trailer park rent.

Casey did good in the drivers championship at Miami gaming. Just drew bad holes and horses but got a few down the stretch for checks at huge odds. OO sting lots of first up drives but did ok. Todd Warren driving his butt off to break in and stay in herring. Wilfong doesnt have a barn to drive for yet, but I seen him listed in qualifiers with Seekman and Shehan. Juan will probably come with Nelson horses. Tim Curtin I hope is healing fast. Husted has big owners and doing well for himself. Id say 60% of his horses he gets checks with and purses same as MVG which is money. Robby Rittoff I think is taking the winter off from driving and is training in Florida with Angie Coleman. Id like to Smollin or Bell  show up down there to drive for there barn.
