Sports News Without Fear, Favor or Compromise

It turns out last night's Idiot in Kansas City wasn't the only maniac to invade a playing field. Here's a gent who rushed onto a horse track during a harness race and ended up spooking one of the competitors.


Maywood Park, outside Chicago, is a legendary harness racing venue. We can't imagine drivers figured they'd be dodging human traffic, though, when they strapped themselves into their sulkies for the evening's tenth race of pacers around the half-mile oval. We'd love to get more information on this moron, whose interference led to race favorite Summer Party getting spooked and eventually declared a non-starter by track officials. (Long shot Cee Cee's Delight would end up winning, paying out $18.80.)
