Churchill pps not in DRF digital paper edition today (May 13)

Any reason at all for this? Other than wanting to milk the customer out of few more dollars.

this just brought something to mind. when Nevada used to book their own horses they used to provide every customer with the racing form free of charge.

when you walked into the racebook they had a counter with someone sitting in it, they used to give the programs with the betting numbers on it, like the 7th race at Garden State, the 4 horse might have a number like 4704. that was the number you used to bet with. so when you get done with the programs the lady used to ask do you need a racing form? i never bothered with them. but it makes me think, they weren't to afraid of people using that form to handicap the races. if people could win with the racing form, those hotels would have never given them up for free. maybe its different today!

I know for a fact that Arlington and their OTB's refused to carry the Form.

I can understand why CD was annoyed, but this disagreement is bad for the industry. Itís ridiculous that I have to have multiple accounts just to get replays and do all my betting and people have to struggle to get the PPs they want. I may be biased, but imho CD is to blame.

You can buy regular PPs online for $1 a card at Brisnet.com. I just checked and they show Churchill PPs for today and tomorrow.

Correct, don't know the stupidity behind it, but both are still standing strong?

So Brisnet is going to give you bad data for Churchill? Or bad data for other tracks?

Brisnet publishes PPs for all tracks. It gets its data from Equibase. Why would they have any motive to do anything other than publish accurate data? DRF is the only one I could see with a motive for messing around, like not publishing Churchill PPs.

Itís mostly related to DRF going into the bet taking business years ago with DRF Bets. The sad part is that it seems to be escalating.
