I have been talking to Jason for weeks regarding the video and issues with the post parade at Vernon Downs. Here is a letter I sent him tonight.

Come on Jason this is effing ridiculous, race 1 post parade started with some BUGLE thing on the screen and race 2 post parade was done while showing results for race 1.

Heads need to roll, I think I been fair in trying to handle these blatant incompetent issues with you directly but the people working for you are morons. I am sorry if they are your friends but this level of unprofessionalism is insane and really brings down the product.

Let's get serious about Vernon Downs, best backdrop in the world for racing and a very nice track. It is bad enough Joe Faraldo is the horseman's rep, do we need the rest of the product to be a complete joke???

Agree, announcing for #1 horse and showing #2 or 3. The guy running the camera has to listen...just sayin

I can live with that part, I actually thought over the past couple weeks the camera work on the parade is better. I want to see the horses from good angles as they come on the track. I like to catch them almost head on and then follow them till I get a good side view. I thought that part was getting better.

Moran talks to much to go with his lead, let him do his thing telling the world the ownership contingent and what color underwear the driver was wearing when they won a driving title in 1946.

But missing the entire parade cause some incompetent goof is showing us results from race 1 or some bugle screen is nonsense.

I also want to complain about showing the wrong results after a race, for instance race 9 ends and they are showing race 8.

Another complaint is showing the wrong replay of the stretch after the race. Many times after a race, say race 7 just ends then they show the zoom in of what is supposed to be the stretch run of race 7 and in reality they are showing a zoom in of race 6.

Just not good work and people need to be replaced.

Agree, I want to see as much of the horse as possible and that means coming toward the camera. Also yes, I have seen them run ads or have something else up during the parade....Im thinking you are on it!!! cheers

Tonight after race 4 they showed the stretch run of race 3. Then after the official they showed the replay of race 3.

Never seen replay of race 4.

I have to agree. What a disaster the post parade is. Moran still announcing the one horse and the camera is on the four horse. LOL

And I did see when they showed the wrong replay too.

They have to figure out a way to get this stuff right.
