Ray has a pretty tough piece up on wagering integrity and horseplayer concerns here today.
Something we all know too well?
For anyone not paying attention, the volume of pari-mutuel handle on horse racing is down this year by roughly 5%. It’s not just a Kentucky problem. By year’s end, total pari-mutuel handle in the United States may very well dip below $14 billion for the first time since 1999. That’s 10 years of stagnation.
It is well worth a read. And on behalf of HANA, if I may, a big thanks to horseplayer Mike Maloney for taking the time to help the game.
