Open access, throw in a few rebates, free video from most if not all ADW's. If we speak to some, this relatively simple business concept is likened to writing the Magna Carta whilst simultaneously curing the common cold.
Not at Hawthorne Racecourse.
In a piece titled No ADW Issues Evident we get to see what happens when racetracks and horseman groups actually distribute a signal to customers.
Walsh said the Hawthorne signal will be going out to all major advance deposit wagering companies -- the providers of Internet and telephone wagering that, along with horsemen and tracks, have been the focus of a battle this year over revenue-sharing plans.
“I don’t think there is a place out there that is not going to be able to bet Hawthorne,”
Score one for common sense with this line, as well.
“Horsemen are on both sides,” he said. “They believe they should get bigger percentages, but realize there may not be a percentage of any kind to get if these companies go out of business.”
If Horseplayers want to play Hawthorne it appears they will be able to and they won't have to bounce a ball on their nose to do it.
