And as i usual there wili not i~e any racing on Christmas ~day. , Most of the racing buffs who make the trip are refugees from the big city tracks of the North. They travel to West Virginia be- cause New York and Maryland have put the thoroughbred to "bed" for the winter and Florida is taboo because travel expenses are too high and the distance impossible. Although Charles Town's pro- grams will not attact any stakes horses and the majority of the races will be allowance and claim ing events. Charles Town does offer the "standard" northern racing fan racing on a high plane.
