  1. Accurate observations about the paddock! In addition, the introduction of the paddock-show tent to the paddock-yard has squeezed the space even further. And in a related but equally ominous move, on the track apron, immediately prior to the Jim Dandy, some folks had put down chairs next to the fence, presumably to save their spots (like parking spaces in a Boston winter). An usher declined to do anything about it. If this trend catches on, there will be bloodshed on a busy Saturday, probably even prior to the Travers.

  2. Totally agree on the Paddock issue. It is like an obstacle course trying to get through the crowd. I actually saw a picnic table pushed up against the Paddock fence so people could sit on the table top and watch the horses.
