Waiting on scratches but one thing I did notice:

DESPERADO cuts back a bunch third over off a near-lifetime fig. He's three for four in the $$$ at this distance and belongs on a grope ticket or two.

I still can't make a dime but watching the the chalkies take a beating in the first three has put some thrills into my old drawers.

Now go cancel the card.

This Big Government Racing was brought to you by Governor Andy Boy Cuomo and his scumload of Albany hacks.

As an old NYRA computer operator employed by AutoTote I'm thinking that the enormous action laid in on the $194K P6 carryover into busted turf races caused the cancellation.

By law, busted turf races catch ALL as the winner in P6 races once the 1st Leg gets run and with boatloads of scratches coming the system in use now was simply overwhelmed with live consos from the Pick wagers already run, refunds, the late scratches, cancelled wagers into late-scratch runners and a bad situation.

Must have been panic in the tote room when the perfect storm of bad poop hit the propeller.

Think of it - Syndicates with big bucks in on the P6 see five turf races taken off the grass with a gazillion scratches coming before Leg 1 gets run. The P6 wager cancellations alone cooked off the tote.
