I believe this is the correct answer. The reason that closing the pools currently requires manual intervention right now is because we're trying to sync it up with the gate opening. Moving it to when...

Confusing that they would own up to it this weekend, but not say anything about last weekend. Figured they would go all in one way or the other.

My suspicion is that last week’s incident may have...

The estimated price tag to bring Pimlico up to snuff is $300-$500 million.

I don't know of any that are playing harness. Not sure it's profitable enough to bother with.

In that case the odds of hitting this wager are 229,441,000,000,000,000:1. So we're saying there's a chance? :D

Hell, TSG might as well advertise a $5 billion bonus to whoever hits this, because...

For those comparing it to a lottery bet, the odds of nailing the exact order of finish in a 12 horse field are 479 million to 1. And that's just the first race.

Correct on all counts. I believe the pushback on this is legitimate; of the last three northern OTBs to close (2013, 2016, 2017), reports were run a year later to see how much ADW handle had...

That's a very ominous prediction. If I'm reading that correctly, they're saying that most of the uptick we've seen year over year since 2011 can be attributed to CRW. But the whales will soon run out...

Will be very interesting to see the handle numbers from opening day. If they’re at all comparable to 2017, the tracks will have the union over a barrel. Pretty risky gamble.

My guess is that July 2nd will come and go, and TSG will provide no agreements. At the next CHRB meeting (7/12), the board will formally deny their application for failing to comply.
