All the Sweaty Horses

Hello, I'm Charlie Hayward.A note to our pals at NYRA:

That big picture of CEO Charlie Hayward on the website, next to the announcement that you're cancelling racing today, looks really, really stupid. Mabye instead you might put up a picture of a frothy horse or someone who works back in the stables. Or how about one of those usherette girls, looking sad because racing is off. We don't care what Charlie Hayward looks like, OK?

The upside of today's Saratoga cancellation? It's a welcome new angle on yesterday's glut of overbaked it's really hot outside stories. Today: Horses find it hot, too.
