The decision by Monmouth Park officials prompted likely more than 80% of folks to stand on the same side as PETA but, in the end, cooler heads prevailed and most of the day's races were cancelled while the marquee Haskell Invitational was moved to 8 pm ET, a time when temperatures were closer to the high 80's.

Michael Dempsey of TurfNSports agreed the races should have been postponed, and technically they were.  He's also a vocal critic against PETA but found himself oddly on the same side Saturday...at least as it pertained to racing horses in 110 degree heat.  Dempsey summed it up best at the conclusion of the Haskell Invitational:
