When slots entered a racetrack, horse betting handle was off about 15%. That's maybe your casual player moving over, not as much what you guys did. But...

I remember that too. I wondered why it died, but I assume it was because of complaints from factions, rather than data, because as the Meadows shows it seems it has some worth.

I know I am probably in the minority, but when I used to go live five days a week, each of us throwing in $5 and deciding on horses for our show parlay is something I enjoyed. Great memories.

Their takeout increase helped the big day, no doubt. And signal fees have increased revenue as well.

Of course - and this is not talked about much - when CDI raises their signal fee for their big...

It's amazing how much Churchill does in the one week, versus the entire year on their handle.

Ouch, the Elliston quotes in that article are cringeworthy.

The place has done a complete 180 since Nick left. They deserve the brand hit they've taken with customers, imo.
