I don't know. But it is clearly happening. And honestly, Harper should stop publicly lobbying for another BC at Del Mar and try to figure out how to stop the bleeding. Tracks that lose their live...

only 33,000 on track at DMR opening day

They have lost a significant number of casual fans. I am sure Joe Harper was wincing at the small crowd, no matter what he says publicly.

This is a subject where my lack of expertise is extreme, so I don't want to say anything really definitive.

But I do at least wonder if the breeding industry's preferences with respect to...

They are losing their jobs because 90 percent or more of the bets on horse races are not made through tellers anymore, and because the racing calendar is centered around big special events and not...

I don't expect them to change. I was reacting to a post that implied that we have no right to tell them how they manage their investments. Investment in sports is different.

Without racing fans-betting and non-betting- their investments go away. So I would say they have an obligation to the sport that gives them these opportunities. And when they thumb their nose at that...

The way I would put it is if you told me $60 million might turn on finding something wrong with a horse, I am sure I could do it.

Not sure about Biggie and Tupac, but I agree Saratoga's racing is quite a bit better than Del Mar's when you take into account the denser racing calendar.

I have seen many circumstances where a complicated exacta or trifecta bet ends up paying lower odds against the money invested than a simple win bet.

At least I make substantive replies. You, on the other hand, are just flinging insults.

I think you are just using a very ideosyncratic definition of "slump" and then gratuitously insulting me for using the more common definition.

Heck, I even put "slump" in quotation marks.

For most players, the win pool is highly underrated. You can't make the big lifechanging score, but the takeout is usually lower and the variance is far lower.

Indeed, I disagree with that portion...

I don't believe racing can police itself. Nor does it. The federal legislation seems a good idea because state regulators seem to have been captured.

But all that said, the FBI doesn't go out and...
