No.

The meet hasn't started yet. Once it does more substance will be posted. Wanted to highlight the fact that the San Diego Newspaper hasn't had any coverage yet.

It will be interesting to see how Del Mar goes this summer, I would say last summer was the most competitive meet I can recall with large fields on both dirt and turf. It carried over for most of the fall so hoping it does the same this year but I am unsure since the BC is not in socal which I think was a big reason.

Pretty sure handle will be up. I think the economy is helping handle.

Really looking forward to Del Mar's first big Tournament of the year.

Nice prize pools.

8 BCBC's and 8 NHC's up for grabs.

Bit pricey at $8000 but well worth taking a shot if you want to test your skills vs the country's elite tournament players.

July 28 & 29.

Here's the info....

That's almost as much to enter as the WSOP main event.

A dying job for a dying breed of customer. Sorry guys, but giving the track the flexibility to lower staffing when there's more tellers than customers is a very reasonable ask. If this is the hill you want to die on, then the tracks will just bite the bullet and move on without you.

God, yeah talk about stupid. I'm not saying I want people to lose their jobs but they obviously are not living in reality here.

I also have not used a teller to place a bet I think more than once or twice in my life

My home track also lets me cash out from a machine too so there's no use for it.

Don't think I have ever seen a cash out machine and i have been to a lot of tracks. I use tellers probably 1-2% of the time I'm playing

Arlington has them. I think maybe last 2-3 years. So, the technology is there. If these tellers think they'll still be needed to cash out, this part can be automated too...

Casinos have had them for several years.
