Presque Isle Downs, Erie, PA, Sep 19, 2008 (Track #147)

I was kind of looking forward to visiting Presque Isle Downs. They had made such a splash in their debut season and got such positive buzz at least with simulcast players.  Well, buzz indeed, but more like bzzzzzzt! I was not impressed. Mainly because the casino pretty much kicked racing fans out front on the apron and left them there. This building is for casino players, schlub. Crappy crowded little tiny simulcast room. too. If there was something upstairs I did not visit. Thankfully it was a pleasant night so being forced to be out on the apron was not too heinous.

But one pleasant surprise: Katie! Katie from Hawthorne was there. Wow, I never realized how tall she was.

Pix only.
