SCIOTO DOWNS OPENING NIGHT
« on: May 19, 2020, 02:33:50 PM »
What is your prediction for handle and what number would be consider a success / failure for the final number..... They have a unique advantage getting a head start as other tracks and states get ready to open...

I was thinking they would handle around 750k --  they will be helped with light thouroughbred schedule

Sounds reasonable.  I would not be shocked if it was $250k higher or lower. Nobody knows what to expect from this Covid19 damage.

Just love doing the broadcast. Shuley, Chumlee, Paddock have gotten used to the holier than thou attitude. We only work on the show, because we get paid. Dealing with Ringo is a different story.

Those numbers are all failures from a purse structure. OTB are still closed. No on track handle. The ADW is a small take % in the end game of handle especially funding a purse account more so when casinos are closed. I'm not sure how many races they will race nor the day purses given out. They will have to handle several millions to come close to funding the purses going out per a card.

Anything less than 3 million is abject failure

Which means everyone that saying racing will gather all this handle(no other sports to wager) on the racing end but there unaware how much is needed to break par. Yet right nowhere close to 3.0mln which needs probably more then that to break even. I'm sure purses will be 125k or more.

This is true in a perfect world, however, harness racing's own failures have made the replies to this statement the likely reality.   

Banning any bad actor from this point forward might show the public harness racing is interested in curing decades of bad behavior. 

But that is like wishing for the impossible.

problem is they could ban them -- all of them -- would anyone other than a harness bettor even know ?
