A comment we just received from a HANA member which adds some credence to the work Equibase has done with the scratches via RSS feed:
Race #5 at Keeneland the 2 scratched at the gate. As soon as Becker announced it, I went to the Equibase site and it was up! Now that's real time!!!
Little things like the above give us some confidence that someone is minding the store with our betting money. That has to be a positive thing!
