What do you find so funny Wiggles?
Why don't you just answer the question  ....   Where would the horses come from if all you had was Mohawk?    Or are you of the opinion that SB racing should just end completely??

Who cares where they come from when you do the math on these non woodbine mohawk races they need to close  add in the takeout and they are losing 7x what they are getting. How is that in any equation good?

Keeps a lot of hard working uneducated people from drawing poggy? A good investment.

"where are these people working from november until may?"

Some have horses that will run at Mohawk during the winter when the top 20% are given a rest.

Some of them take care of the horses that aren't running in the winter.   They still eat and shit.

Some of them go to Florida with bigger operations to break and train down 2 year olds.

And I'm sure some do collect UI.

"Who cares where they come from"

WEG cares where they come from.   Shortage of quality horses is a big problem for tracks.
No horses, no wagering, no future.

Maybe get educated or realize harness is a dead sport and find another skill and stop sucking off everyone's teats..The world evolves...like it or not. OBVIOUSLY many are extremely hard working ppl that can do other industries well.

And right now some of the world is evolving around the great sport of harness racing whether you like it or not.

explain.. "great" sport of harness racing? really? if it is so great why does nobody bet it? tbreds 10x the amount wagered. The sport of harness racing has died very quickly whether you like it or not. I wish it did not but realistically it did

Appreciate that you understand it. Get rid of 75 percent of tracks and watch the pools and quality of races rise
