- A commenter under the name Delaware North Companies writes:
The rumor and comments you have written about related to Delaware North's financing is absolutely false. Delaware North Companies is working diligently on completing the MOU and everything is going as planned. We would appreciate it if you would relay our message on your blog.Not to be cynical or anything...and again, as I said, the rumors referred to are purely speculation (though certainly understandable given the incessant delays over the years), but the comment is essentially anonymous as far as I'm concerned. Anyone can leave a comment under that name - it could be Patricia Lynch or Darren Dopp for all I know. So if you're reading over there at Del North, we'd love to hear more about what's going on, what the issues are, and when you think the project will finally be underway.
Thank you !
- My pick at Aqueduct just plain sucked today, though not as badly I guess as Ravel, 6th at even money for the Toddster; nor the Levine entry which ran 6th and 7th at 3-5. Anthony Dutrow wins the finale, and I'd keep an eye out for him as mentioned before.
- Pull the Pocket jumps on the Maylan Studart merry-go-round; Saratogaspa brings my head down; and Handride explores what it really means to get down on a horse. (Actually not an original concept...though I hope it works out better for Leeroy.)
- Completely off topic: On this site, you can see some of the actual ballots that are being contested by one side or another in the Minnesota Senate race (and there are reports today that Democrat Al Franken has finally pulled ahead). Pretty fascinating stuff. For the most part, it seems pretty damn clear to me who the voter intended to select. But this voter (pdf document) has a special place in my heart! (It was the 4th quarter of the Jets game that made me want to hold my daughter this past weekend....though being that she's 19, I suppose it may have been inappropriate.)
If I find any ballots which have Curlin written in, I'll let you know.
