GPS on a Tractor

You’d think it wouldn’t be too hard to make your way around the one-mile oval at Emerald Downs. But track superintendent Wayne Damron used a global positioning system this past week to direct a regarding and renovation.

Damron added additional synthetic fiber to the track material to help it bind together better. He says the renovation should not affect the play of the surface as horses arrive for the August 19 Grade 3 Longacres Mile presented by TVG.
