So in brief, what you're saying is that the Balmoral pick-4 handle went DOWN in January of 2010 despite the takeout reduction of TEN PERCENT (actually a "takeout reduction by 40%")... and then increased more than 270% over the next two years despite no further takeout change???

Such a takeout reduction at a place like Balmoral serves only to cost each and every one of its satellite wagering facilities a good chunk of money. Of course Balmoral is agreeable because others are footing the bill.

Nice try though. No wonder you are giving out "Balmoral results".

Hello,

We're not saying anything, just reporting on a track who has raised handle the past few years with some foresight, better pricing and being responsive to the needs of the customer.
