Woodbine Handle Shows Growth

Woodbine Entertainment Group announced Dec. 20 that handle on the Woodbine 2012 live Thoroughbred meet, which concluded Dec. 16, showed impressive growth over the 2011 season.
 
The 156-day meet saw "all-sources" wagering total $453,865,564, up 7.2% over the $423,209,365 wagered on the 165 dates offered in 2011. The numbers are even more impressive on a per card basis. Last year, an average of $2,564,905 was bet per card. In 2012, an average of $2,909,394 was recorded, a 13.4% hike.

It is the fourth consecutive year of handle increases on the Thoroughbred season. Wagering increased 7.5% in 2011 over 2010, and improved 8.9% in 2010 over 2009. It also increased 7% in 2009 over 2008. All-sources wagering on Woodbine's Thoroughbred racing is up more than 34% since 2008, a time period that many tracks saw wagering declines.

I have stated and will repeat it, WOODBINE SUPPORTS THE EDUCATION OF THE NEW PLAYER LIKE NO OTHER TRACK. I have worked with Wendy M. the seminar director and she gets good talent, great technological support, great PR and is always looking for ongoing ideas. We are considering a seminar next Summer on wagering philosophy with some very talented people on tap if all goes well.
