Saratoga Springs without racing? NYRA insists it is not crying wolf

The issue of whether thoroughbred horse racing is in jeopardy was the topic of this morning's Capitol Pressroom, Susan Arbetter's live radio show. Co-host for the day was Jay Gallagher, the well-respected Gannett News Service journalist, and the guests were Bennett Liebman, who has extensive background from both the inside and outside of New York racing from a legal perspective. Susan called on me to talk about the issue from a Saratoga perspective. You can listen to the podcast at

what you should really be concerned with is that the city is going to fill in the skateboard bowl/pool in eastside park. why? $20,000 spent less than a decade ago. people come from all over to skate it and it supplies a great, challenging spot for skateboarders to learn and grow without getting in the way of people downtown. saratogian should look into this. the decision is being made without any input.
