New Rebates and a No to Takeout Hikes

Hawthorne has joined the lower prices mantra with a new rebate program. If someone knows of a racetrack giving 4 points for 15k a month wagering I have not found it. In a "one for the little guy" move they are also offering a point to everyone who wants one. This will raise their handle, and for that a hat tip.

Kentucky lawmakers are getting the "pushback from tracks" with regards to making the customer pay for everything through takeout hikes. Good for them too.

The world is changing in racing, one point at a time. The message is getting through.

Wow, that is a nice rebate! Ok, so I'm a tad bit partial because I work there, but Sam Houston Race Park's "Park Rewards" program offers tremendous value, for casual and serious players alike.

I'd love to hear what you think, and any other track rewards programs you think are worth discussing.
