Longer meet?
« on: January 16, 2018, 08:19:46 am »

Has there been any discussions?  I know the casino handles a lot more money when the races are going.  Would seem logical it would support the racing with the increased profit from the slots.

no way they will extend it to later into april. earlier would be the only option. i could see maybe when remington closes in december which makes sense. our weather is better in late december than it is in mid january for sure.

A fall meet would make more sense, IMO.

So much marketing build up and anticipation for the AR derby being the "grand finale," that it would be hard to extend the meet beyond that day.  and they dang sure won't move that race due to it's relevance in KY derby discussions.

A lot of people are off the week of Christmas and New Years. They could start around Thanksgiving and add about another 20 days to the meet.   Years Christmas is on a M-W run 4 day weekends I would think traffic on track would be up with so many people off.

I've always thought a fall meet where we could get some 2 year old races would be great. The drawbacks is when to do it. They could race at night but Friday is high school football and Saturdays are for Razorbacks. I wish Oaklawn would just try something a little outside the box

I like the thought of a longer season.
