My current adw dropped Lebanon a couple of years ago and now the new Miami Valley Raceway is opening early next month, I want to take the unusual opportunity of getting to follow a track from it's inception.

So... Looking around I haven't seen any ADW listing the new track and on their website it appears they might be part of Churchill Downs group, are any of the advertising ADW's here going to offer this track or does anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks..

I contacted BET PTC, an advertiser on this site, trying to see if they carried the signal (and trying to get to the bottom of the situation with the signal). Miami Valley Raceway was sold is 2012 and they are constructing a new venue. He said they are in the process of constructing a new racetrack at the Warren County Fair. Thus, that appears to be the reason why ADW's are not listing them - as their operations are not on-line.

The track is finished and will open on time. I don't think the simulcast contracts are even completed. Anyone that takes harness will have them.

Thanks clarifying the situation with MVR. I read an article from Dec 19th, 2013, which stated they were having problems getting a license from the OSRC. One of the issues was a cost-cutting measure whereby MVR wanted to eliminate pari-mutuel tellers (although keeping some staff on hand to teach people how to use mobile gaming devices). Do you know how this situation was resolved?

They caved and are going to have some tellers. They have already released a condition sheet with purses. People I know who have been inside say the racing area is done as cheaply as possible. It's a casino that is required to have racing.

We (BetPTC) will have them once they start running. Right now that's scheduled for 2/7/14.

Any ADW outlet that carried Lebanon in the past should carry Miami Valley when they open next week I would assume.
