Wally - Charles Cella did a lot for the horse owners and trainers. Their tributes to him are highlighted in another article. Missing from your column and the other article is any mention of what Mr. Cella did for the horseplayers, the folks who come to the racetrack to wager on the races., the folks who supported Oaklawn all through the years. Very little. I know that you will say that the "quality of racing" greatly improved at Oaklawn. It has. But that didn't pay for the price of seating, concessions, programs, and parking. Free admission (finally) was the result of lobbying laws, not the racetrack's generosity.
