Monday News and Notes

HANA Week at Keeneland is complete. As we have been documenting on the blog, the industry has met HANA members with open arms at Keeneland. To Mr. Nicholson and the crew at the historic track, thanks. To Todd, Matt and everyone at TVG, a big thanks. To HANA members from the plethora of states to make the trip, I hope you had a good time. We hope to have Jeff's interview from TVG on the blog sometime soon.

HANA in the News

Jeff and Dean were recently interviewed on internet radio in Canada, via Standardbred Canada's Trot radio here.

HANA will be represented as a presenter at the Canadian Wagering Conference in Windsor, in late April - putting the "North" in HANA. One session will focus on betting exchanges and the horseplayer, to be discussed along side Betfair's managing director, Mark Davies. The other will be on the Future of Wagering.

Last up: The Weekly HANA Bet!

Tuesday is turning to Saturday! This week has been a busy one, but during the weekly HANA meeting we will be setting the sights on a race this Saturday at Turf Paradise. We wish to hear Arizona's players thoughts about this, and if they are able to play along with the rest of us. We will be highlighting this more this week.

Harness Bettors Input Needed

A fair percentage of HANA members are dual breed bettors. If you play harness racing, please help out with a survey here. Thanks!

Hi guys,

I am not from AZ, but I won't be betting TuP, because TwinSpires does not take bets for it over the Internet.

What a dud survey for the harness - they give a dozen options about what should be in the racebook or what can improveracing, and you can only pick one. Obviously haven't wasted any money on professional market research people...
