Santa Anita Debuts the Pro-ride/Cushion track hybrid

We had some harsh tongue in cheek criticism for Santa Anita the other day. However the first day of the pro-ride/ Cushion hybrid seemed like a success. The runaway obscenely fast times were under control, there were no breakdowns and the texture of the track looked different. Thye racing was form ful with no visible bias towards closers or speed. The real test will arrive with precipitation but I would bet that this fix is a success. Congratulations to Santa Anita for working through a difficult issue. Perhaps the entire industry learned something from Santa Anita's folly and that may be a good thing.
