Aqueduct synthetic surface was actually a Task Force item for consideration

  1. I am not a huge fan of synthetic but I think it is a good
    idea for the inner course, I prefer Presque Isles surface (Tapeta)
    over Turfways (Polytrack).

  2. With the prevalence of cold temperatures through December – February at Aqueduct, it is telling that the recommendation for a synthetic track was based on the similarity of conditions with Turfway. Those are NOT optimum conditions for anything, not track nor man nor beast, and an auxiliary option would be “take ’em to Aiken,” if the NY pols weren’t mostly interested in cultivating the $$$.

    1. I’d love to see that, too, Frank. But, the dollars from casinos at Aqueduct, which has propped up the local horsemen, NYS, and the pols, makes your argument nothing more than a fairy tale. A nice one, albeit!
