Sports betting impact in new Weekend Preview!
« Return to News
"Give me $20 to win on #4 in the 5th at the Meadowlands, and $55 to win $50 on the Knicks +6 against the Celtics." That's what's in the immediate future after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a 25-year-old law that banned sports wagering in all but four states. And in the new and free HarnessRacing Weekend Preview, we have full coverage of the historic ruling, including an interview with Meadowlands owner Jeff Gural, who spoke to Gordon Waterstone about the impact sports betting will have on the Big M.
Gural reveals his thoughts about the expected new revenue and what role it may or not play on the purse structure. He also talks about the horse shortage that is crimping the race cards at the Meadowlands. Penn Gaming's Chris McErlean also revealed what's in the cards for sports betting at Freehold Raceway.
Trainer Jimmy Takter gives an update on two-time divisional champion trotter Ariana G, who makes her 4-year-old debut Saturday at the Meadowlands, and he gives his thoughts about the impending arrival to his barn of Down Under star pacer Lazarus.
Kathy Parker caught up with trainer Ron Burke at the Blooded Horse Sale in Ohio and he filled her in on his trio of Confederation Cup starters Sunday at Flamboro Downs, including top contender Filibuster Hanover. Burke also gave an update on the breeding status of 2017 Horse of the Year Hannelore Hanover. Kathy also spoke to trainer Jamie Macomber and the triumphant return of Breeders Crown 3YO champ Beckhams Z Tam.
