They say that 20% of the wagering pool comes from computer-robotic wagering; should the 20% gain prominence over the other 80%?
One idea I have toyed with is shutting off remote betting 1 minute before post but allowing onsite betting, with perhaps a dollar limit, until the gates open.

That would reward people who attend the races live. But current business models at many tracks are so reliant on remote handle that it probably wouldn't work.
