Pool Party Hits the North

What do Bud Grant, Gump Worsely, Jack Morris and HANA have in common? They all did something in Minnesota!

The Pool Party moves to Canterbury this weekend, race 8, a turf race with a nice deep field. Details to come.

I just received my Canterbury marketing e-mail and sure enough, in living color, was promotion of the Pool Party. This is the second track in a row that has embraced the Pool Party. With tracks realizing that they can promote this and make a huge score on the race (without having to do anything like reducing takeouts, by the way), it may be getting to be time to take it to the next level - there is a "next level" planned, I hope. Now that we're getting their attention - how do we use it to affect change?

I just finished looking at the HANA Track Spreadsheet. This chart says it all. How can the sport survive as a viable betting venue with that kind of take out? How can we survive betting into that? Can we find a way to use positive reinforcement for the better takeout venues? Why can't the Pool Parties be held at these tracks? In these pools? Steve.

I would also like to see the Pool Party focus on the lower takeout tracks.
