Happy Hambletonian Day - Notes, Links
It's 16 races; trots, paces, mixed distances, short fields, big fields. And some are very interesting.
As most know, heavy doses of chalk can and do happen on days like this often in harness. And make no mistake, there are some very good looking favorites. But this card feels a little different to me. I think some of these chalk - even of the heavy variety - have a chance to go down. I always like watching Hambo Day - from start to finish. But this one really intrigues me from a betting perspective.
Anyhoo, some links:

Hashtag is #Hambo16 for you people who twitter, like Donald Trump; or someone who works for him, if they recently took his password away.
Have a great day everyone.
