The Belterra Park book is out already and the purses went Up. Not as dramatically as CD from Sept to Nov last year after they got Derby City Gaming up and running, but still it is an increase that helps out the little guy in this area.

To be honest those purses suck at Belterra. No way an owner can make money at that track paying a decent day rate. Breaking even would be consider a win in my book.

Well that is true of a LOT of racetracks these days - Mahoning, Mountaineer, Turfway etc in this area, which are higher than a lot of other places like Fairmount, Arapahoe, Prairie Meadows, to name just a few. It's not that you Can't make money, it is just harder to do so.

Just glad to hear the purses are going UP. It could be the reverse!

Yes! Also the Indiana book just came out and they are opening earlier than previously. The Churchill book is crazy - but the purses are enormous so I think the competition will be as well. It will be an interesting season.
