I'm all for "saving" horse racing but the cesspool of corruption that is Parx I can do without.

If they want to save horse racing in PA, they'd be MUCH better off petitioning to reopen the casinos. What would daily purses be without casino money? The PA racetracks without casinos will have 1990 purses again.

I assume they would handle more than WRD and Fonner. So $4 million x 20%+ take (not sure if they have they have their own betting app/ADW)

Parx has one of the original ADWs, Phonebet (not sure if it is still called that). I'm not sure how much handle they get through that as opposed to others, but it would have to help at least some.

The smaller - middle tracks usually get 3 - 6 % of handle (not the full takeout rate) from outside betting sources, based on the negotiated rates between the host track and the outlet taking their signal. The biggest tracks can get 8 - 10 %

Parx does have phonebet and those statewide handle numbers are linked below.

thanks for those links. I admit I am biased having horses stabled there even though I dont bet the product (I couldn't if they started running tomorrow anyway due to ADW restrictions in my state)

PA stats:

the average age of Pennsylvanian's dying is 79. And of those 3,000 deaths more than two-thirds are from people in nursing homes with 99.9% of them having underlying unrelated health issues to COVID 19.

For the record PA has approximately 13,000,000 people living in the State of Pennsylvania. Taking out the nursing home deaths that leaves 1,000 death certificates reading COVID 19.

This means the chances of a healthy person dying in the State of Pennsylvania from COVID 19 is 0.00007692%.

Does this justify extending the lockdown as the governor has done?

The odds of becoming a lightning victim in the U.S. in any one year is 1 in 700,000.

So your chances of being struck by lightning

There's one difference. Lightening is not very contagious.

What Wolf is doing in PA is criminal. He's basing most of his criteria for opening on the state health czar, Rachel Levine, who is a pediatrician! She is not qualified to be handling this crisis. She came up with this 50 infections per 100,000 residents in a county over a 14 day period, which is way more extreme than the federal guidelines. Most of the counties in PA have very little infections and we went way past the curve. Wolf is getting a lot of pressure even from some Democrats. I have no idea why he's so hell bent on destroying small businesses. The unemployment rate in PA is going to be one of the highest in the country.

What's really odd, according to the CDC, 3% of health care workers have contacted the virus. You would think it would be more. If you back out the nursing homes, the numbers drop sharply. And, of course, there are certain areas in NY and other cities that got hit hard. 54% of the deaths from the virus occurred in six states.
