I think the argument is that fewer tracks will lead to lower operating costs for the industry as a whole, but that much of the handle will simply shift to the remaining tracks (via internet, simulcast, phone and other OTB betting). That means the remaining tracks will be more profitable, which in turn will allow them to invest in their facilities, raise purses, consider lowering the take etc...
