Today's ruling is common sense and one huge win for my favorite game. It will save horse racing in many states. There's no better place for sports books then existing race tracks. Horse and sports betting go hand in hand socially and the tracks will be revitalized with today's ruling. I hope many states immediately roll this out and I know the tracks are waiting. How cool to spend a day at the races betting live races, simulcast races, early games, then staying late night betting the late games with the fellas chasing loses or doubling up wins. Just awesome. Will be a Vegas book atmosphere at every track. Parimutuel handle could double if tracks embrace this and invest in the book and make it fun and modern. New blood betting horses. SO pumped!
On a down note I just loaded the form for Friday and Pimlico and checked the weather and it's like 100% rain both days. Crap. I was begging for a fast track to try and beat Justify with a closer. In the slop that isn't happening. Hopefully the turf can hold at least.
