USA Horse racing start times.
« on: 20 May 2018, 00:38 »
What's up with the race start times in USA?  Everywhere else in the world seems to be able start their races pretty close to the scheduled start time.  USA races seem to typically start anywhere from 2 minutes to 30 minutes late.

Anyone got any ideas on how to try and estimate what the actual start time might be?

There are quite a few free streaming sites of US racing which show a minute countdown to actual starting time of each race.

On a lighter note, I note that the punctuality/tardiness of actual race start times compared to advertised starting times correlates highly with the cultural punctuality/tardiness of countries. For example, the Scandinavians are noted for their strict punctuality and I see that Swedish harness races start EXACTLY on advertised starting time !
