It seems the Harness Edge is up and running with some notes about each session of the conference. For those interested, here are a the links to the sessions so far:

Kickoff/The Ship is Sinking

Betting in Convenience Stores

Takeout Discourages Bettors

Edit: Standardbred Canada is now on board with some of the highlights. Well, reading the synopsis on my session I guess I was a big meanie, but oh well. We'll pop the rest up soon.

Turning the Ship

Betting in Convenience Stores is here. I only caught the last half of this, but it was a good discussion. I liked what Dave Bryans and Bassem had to say, but I did not hear enough from the others as I was doing a bit of work and missed most of what they said.

Last one up, was the Takeout discussion with notes and responses from two pros, Jamie and Roy. I know Jamie from university, it was nice to meet Roy. I choose to not sit at a poker table with either of them, however.

God bless you Dean. I expect less than ziltch to come out of this. I feel it is just a big show to make it look like they care.

Keep up the fight for the 2 dollar bettor.

Hey Bud,

I am keeping an open mind until I think about how it goes.

I have been told several times, and I don't think it is a lie, that this is a different conference than the biz is used to. Since I have never been to one I do not know for sure, but take that for what it's worth.

We'll see I guess.

Too many dinky-doo harness racing tracks in Southern Ontario. The pools are diluted. Why does Flam-bingo run during the day? They have $1200 win pools. Betting harness racing from a Convenience store? Honestly, that is the single most silliest thing I've ever heard. I don't even want to bet harness racing from the comfort of my own home, and I'm an action hungry horseplayer.
