Nick Eaves, CEO of Woodbine Entertainment Group (WEG), answers questions about his company's racing business in an interview on The Paulick Report. The interview link is provided below. Among the topics Eaves comments on, he addresses WEG's strategy on takeout: "Our current strategy is to guarantee win Pick 4 pools. This year we have seen a 28 percent increase in our Standardbred Pick 4 pools."
In addition, Eaves notes that WEG's account wagering is up 20 percent this year, mostly because of an increase in handle from Quebec, where horse racing and betting outlets were virtually shutdown last year. Eaves said account wagering represents 28 percent of the handle of WEG's "home market."
