Say What?

This is a true story. I was talking to a general manager of a racetrack and said "how about that 25% takeout on exactas?" And he said "I know! The state won't let us take any more than that!" I think he missed the point slightly.

So goes a quote from horseplayer Rich Halvey's piece in Horseplayer Magazine this month.

We have a long way to go folks.

Wow. The implications of that level of ignorance at that level of the business really make the mind reel.
