The #boycottCDI group - that would be horseplayers like you - were recognized by the mainstream press.
Frank Angst, writing at Bloodhorse.com, interviewed Jeff Platt and the KHBPA's Marty Maline about CDI's handle numbers this meet. As you blog followers know, Churchill Downs handle is off over 25% on non-Derby days this meet, and $19 million, including the Derby. Arlington Park has had a poor start as well.
This despite tracks like Belmont - who have been getting hurt badly (worse than Churchill) in field size holding their own. Several other tracks, like Woodbine, Pimlico, Santa Anita are up handle in the month of May.
