Tampa Talk

Peter Berube, via the Paulick Report:

"The business of horse racing is very expensive to produce. Studies have concluded that the optimal price is between 8-12%. However, at that level, handle would have to nearly double to break even with current takeouts. I just don't believe that is realistic to assume, but I do feel tracks will continue to experiment with gradual reductions."

More on the meet here. No mention of the Twinspires dispute, though.
