Each week, they select a specific race at a specific track to wager on. The race they have selected this week is SATURDAY'S 6TH RACE AT PRAIRIE MEADOWS. No matter what size bettor you may be or what tracks you normally wager on, consider playing this specific race & supporting HANA's efforts. More information can be found at

"The negative is that I don't think HPI has Prairie Meadows on the menu Saturday night, so Canadians who don't have an account with a US ADW that takes Canadian customers will most likely wind up getting shut out this week."

At this time,PM is listed on the HPI site as going tonight at 7:30 post time.

I just went to the HPI site, but because I'm in the Niagara region (not Woodbine's home market), it is not on my menu. I think the problem has to do with what tracks Fort Erie chooses to be on the menu, though I'm not really sure.
Not that I was going to bet through HPI any way:)
Being in the Niagara region, we don't even get the piddly rebate Woodbine gives out.

Just an FYI for all HANA members....

YOU HAVE THE ATTENTION OF PRM MANAGEMENT!!!!

They are well aware of our plans.

Here's my concern. I heard in a round about way, some of the management may not be sold 100% on HANA. Wanna rock their world? BET PRM TONIGHT!!! ESPECIALLY Race 6!!!

Best of luck to all tonight....we will be trackside as it is illegal to bet online on our own races!!

Thanks Donnie! If they were all on board with us our existence would be moot, and racing would be thriving. :cool:

Watch for the HANA banner in our paddock show all night.

I do want to say Prairie Meadows management is 100% behind improving customer satisfaction with all of our entertainment products, in this particular case, racing. The means by which to improve are yet to be determined, but the determined, passionate voice of a multi-national grass-roots organization will not fall on deaf ears.

I would agree with not supporting Woodbine with HANA wagering. Their takeout as you indicated is far too high. Also, their television programming is terrible. On Saturday's for example they may be showing Hollywood (SoCal) racing and they will preempt it with harness racing from Meadowlands. That's like watching OT in the NHL and the station switches to Star Trek in the middle of the game.

Patrick--
you have shown this over and over!! Glad to hear and see it!!

Anybody passing thru Iowa owes it to themselves to visit Prairie Meadows Racetrack and Casino. The service, the people and the facilities are all top-notch!

Hope we ROCK YOUR TOTE tonight!!

The Sport in General saved my life--Long story---So I feel the need to give back---

$400 in the win pool for race 5 at 22MTP. Let's hope Bill W dusts off the wallet and bets early for race 6. I want to see at least $401 in there.

I bet 8-23-a and 8-a-23 and a few other things. I cant watch the race, so someone fill me in on what happens. I am on this nasty dial up.

I did catch a glimpse of the HANA logo at the start of race 6 on the video. That was good. And I think that I saw a flash of video with Jeff Platt eating a sandwich in his HANA boxer shorts. But I am not 100% sure. It might have been Bill W.

I have not won a pool party yet. I am like a five leaf clover who walks under a ladder with this bet.

From my choppy feed it appears HANA likes the exotics. Yikes, every exotic pool was bet into. Even the quinella was up.

Suffolk Downs first 2 Saturday Pick-4 pools have been:
May 2nd- $3,342
May 9th- $3,960
last year they ran around $10k ave.
I've sent Suffolk Downs E-mails, suggesting a special low takeout offered on the bet could increase handle, esp.offtrack handle. I told them dropping the take from 26% to 15% wouldn't cost them much w/ current handle, while getting new players to look at their races. Perhap a HANA special "Pick-4 Pool Party" could show them that, if takeout dropped, more new bettors would check them out. Surely we can get TVG to put out a ticket on-air during Matt's ":58 Flat".
Imagine if HANA multiplied Suffolk's existing Pick-4 pool by 500%!!! That would get headlines, & turn heads! :cool:

I am a newbie that happened to hit the exacta at PM.

These pool party's seem like an excellent idea to me. I will participate as much as possible.
