That new Poly Turf that's making its way to professional sporting venues is something that leaves much to be desired. Apparently, it leaves the bottom of your shoes feeling sticky.
I follow horse racing quite closely, and for the last year and a half big American tracks with a turf course have switched over to this new type of racing surface.
Poly Turf has been known to cut up horses quite badly. What will happen is one horse will take the lead and kick up the artificial turf, throwing it in the eyes and ears of the horses behind the leader.
The other horses end up all cut and bloody.
In any case, I think Poly Turf is a fad.
