I mentioned the Presque Isle thing earlier ITT.

The golden oldies sure do like running at Presque Isle though, don't they? Seems like I see a lot of teenagers running up there after their stints on other circuits. Is the surface easier on them?


The other places you see lots of old horses are Charles Town and Mountaineer though that's more due to how soft the competition is. Old horses with back class can do quite well in the bottom level claimers there.
