To be fair, Simms quote is in response to what would happen if TSG yanked their signals from all of AZ, not what would happen if the OTBs also got the signals.



It is funny (in sad way) to see...

That's basically correct. On the groupings, my understanding is that they'll be based on morning line odds, so that red and black are as close as possible to a 50/50 proposition. While the green...

No, the actual text that would be adopted into the state constitution specifically mentions greyhounds.



There's nothing here that could be applied to horse racing.

Yeah, the computer generated races are a different game. Maryland has it too, but it's completely associated with the lottery, and has no ties to the racing industry. As far as I know the results are...

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.

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

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...

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.
