What the Nation is saying about the John B Connally Turf Hcp...

They say everything is big down in Texas. From my Lone Star State experiences, I’d have to say that ‘they’ are correct. Saturday evening at Sam Houston Race Park should fit right in. The richest day in Texas racing promises to be a big night. The after dark card features the $400,000 Houston Ladies ...Read More

  • buckpasser · TV if the Ontario tracks were doing such a great job of attracting fans, please explain to me why on the Ontario report it showed only 3 tracks that had purses drawn from more from wagering than from slots revenue. Woodbine, Fort Erie and Mohawk drew at the most 51% percent of their purse structure from wagering, the rest came from slots revenue. Ironically, the track that had the best percentage was Fort Erie. In many tracks wagering barely accounted for two percent of the purse structure. If the fan experience was so great, why then are Woodbine etc. barely able to survive without some level of cash infusion. · 479 days ago ·

  • buckpasser · As far as I am concerned, Ontario is a cautionary tale for NY racing in particular. New York State and NY City are about to run deficits to the tune of billions of dollars. They have already raised taxes and cut services. They need some stream of revenue and certainly Cuomo is eyeing gambling expansion. The industry had better be prepared for this. Pennsylvania horsemen headed off huge changes to income distributions and programs. · 479 days ago ·
