He also had another ticket just like that one except for 2 different horses in the 4th leg.
Nobody can make money with an OTB in Maryland with the current rules. If the Cracked Claw in Urbana couldn't make it work (the biggest handle of any Maryland OTB at the time) nobody can!
It is a fact that my kitchen is 10 steps away, my bathroom is 10 steps away, my high def tv is right in front of me and I'm not paying for gas or spending the time to travel or drive home slightly 'buzzed' from the OTB anymore.
Sounds very similar to when The Cracked Claw closed in Urbana Md. The CC had the highest handle for years for the MDJC but when Pappy Poole pushed for a little something extra he had no choice but to close him down when it became clear the site could not sustain the coming slots charge. BTW Dave Zenner the Cracked Claw was a very fine restaurant and bar the held it's own way before it included OTB.
He's more likely to not run a triple crown race than win one. Not a knock, just a fact. I'll be watching.
