Our first salvo at the pools is now complete.
We now have DRF results numbers (still preliminary). As a commenter suggested, a race 6 and race 7 comparison would be worthwhile. It was the same day and had the same field size.
Mutuel Pool: +76%
Exacta Pool: +147%
Quinella Pool: +62%
Trifecta Pool: +92%
Superfecta Pool: +60%
Overall Pool Bump: Plus 96%
We had about a 77% jump in handle from race 6 last week. From race 4 today we had about a 450% pool jump. It appears HANA members and other bettors showed up a little early to bet race 5 as it had larger than average pool numbers. Further, Will Rogers overall handle for 11 races was just below $250,000. The HANA/Mayo race alone represented about 20% of the entire cards handle.
Last week the average per race handle at Will Rogers was $20,740. Race 6 handle yesterday was just short of $50,000.
I know many of you emailed and said you could not play WRD, so we will evaluate things for Day 2; it might be another WRD race, or might not. Regardless, expect more free PP's and tools from our friends in cyberspace (thank you all once again).
We'll update the official results later on when we get them.
Thanks again to everyone who played and joined in! And watch for more from here on the blog. Our sincere thanks! When horseplayers band together, good things can happen.
