Hialeah's so-called meet is underway. Actually a doubleheader meet with first post at noon and second shift at 3 PM, and 8 "races" apiece. I considered attending just to walk the premises for a while, but I doubt I'll do it after reading the details.

Teenage and even early 20s horses competing in match races over 110 yards. Same horses entered day after day. Gates without doors. Whistle start. Exclusively female jockeys and none wearing standard riding gear. A dozen spectators or fewer.
