Hey guys a couple of questions for you.

This guy here http://www.puntingace.com/punting_profiles/zeljko.html


1) Do you think he would prefer lower take, an exchange or both??

2) Which of the above do you think would be the best option for racing to provide to gain most revenue from his astronomical turnover???

And who ever told you...that this industry exists to cater to these megabettors Charlie?

Haven't you heard it advertised all these years...that "the $2 bettor is the backbone of the industry"?

1) Anything that grows the game and brings more players to the game. What he wants is what everyone should want, optimum pricing of the gambling product.

2) I could argue that he doesn't really add revenue to the game. By winning so much, he is taking dollars out of other players pockets who would churn those same dollars if he wasn't playing, and everyone else would last longer as well.

I dont know who that dude is, but I am pretty sure that he is not being enticed to the track for one of those late night Stray Cats concerts at Hollywood.

It's already been established I'm no Albert Eintein, but i would hazard a guess.

1) Both

2) Both


Wouldn't his money in these pots then attract other bettors with slightly smaller turnovers to play it large and all this money moving around would make exchange attractive to traders of varying stakes sizes.

Money attracts money kind of thing.


May be way off base here. Just thinking out loud.

I don't know if Zeljko would prefer lower take, an exchange or both. What I do know is a company called Capital Play applied to run New York racing a few years back. Well Zeljko was behind Capital Play. I remember reading that Capital Play's proposal involved fairly high takeout rates. Zeljko is a rebate player who would not have been paying the high takeout proposed by Capital Play

Thanks for all these links Andy.

Just going back to small fields refered to earlier on. Today at Bighton. 4 horse field - 750k GBP in win pot.


Don't think you'd see anywhere near that amount in win pot at a track in US staging a similar race with US Tote model. Which i think shows the influence and power of fixed odds and exhange betting.


Listen to Mr B meadow very carefully imho.
