There is an old saying, “Mothers-in-law are the seeds that come with the tomatoes.” Far be it for anyone at CawsnJaws.com to debate such a disputable adage. What is not open-to-question is that commercials come along with racing broadcasts, and whether or not they are the equivalent of tomato seeds will not be debated here, either. However, for those who like to know precisely how many ads there were, and how much time they took during the broadcast, here is this week‘s breakdown.
