At least their message was pretty funny. Quite frankly, I have little interest in investing at Del Mar right now regardless.

This industry takes dysfunction to levels lower than any has ever been taken.

You can quit thinking it canít get anymore dysfunctional because there are folks in this industry who are right at his moment doing everything they can to think up new and innovative ways to lower the bar yet again.

Betpad still doesn't have it on their tote menu, even though they sent out an e-mail this morning that said that you could bet them via phone.

Looks like, other than TVG & Ubet, ADW's have to be in a "non-TVG state" in order to take DMR. TOC's approval of other ADW's does not supersede the contract that was in place with TVG.

I'd love to be able to get a graphical representation of that photo so I can get a shirt custom printed with that image on the back and these acronyms listed below: THG CHRB TOC

I just now logged onto Twin Spires -- no online wagering for DMR.

Nothing has changed.

I was able to wager on the card yesterday and through race 5 today....tried to wager on the 6th and now I see the telephone only message (Twinspires). What a bloody mess! This has got to stop...I am just about done with this game. I've been playing the ponies since I was 14 years old (I'm now 42)....I think I just may take up poker or blackjack!

DEL MAR ---- Every time Del Mar's advance deposit wagering problem seems to be somewhat solved, another issue emerges.

On Wednesday, the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club thought it had reached an agreement to get back at least 90 percent of the bettors it had a year ago through ADW companies. Del Mar's exclusive contract with Television Games (TVG) and its wagering partner, Youbet, was enforced in California. But TVG allowed competitors in states where it didn't do business to take wagers on Del Mar's races.

Then, at the California Horse Racing Board meeting on Thursday morning, Drew Cuoto of the Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC) told the board a problem had arisen.

Del Mar executive vice president Craig Fravel said an ADW company he wouldn't specify ---- TVG, Youbet, XpressBet or TwinSpires ---- objected to bets being taken via the Internet instead of exclusively over the phone.

Fravel said the situation was resolved by forbidding Internet betting in those states.

"It's not a big deal," he said.
Business as usual.

It is a big deal to one particular company that pays license fees to accept wagers from most states.
