Friday Wrap-Up & Takeout Increases

Great post by Alan at Leftatthegate about the Jug and USTA bloggers. I read the transcript of the live blogging. Moira and Tim did great! I know Moira and she is awesome so my judgment might be clouded, but I think it is a great idea that worked well. Kudos.

Some nice comments on the aftermath of the Jug sniffed out by the Harness Edge. Of note, Dave Miller always had faith in the horse and that the hoof problem is not as bad as originally thought.

Courtesy the Equidaily headlines: Takeout is looked at increasing in Kentucky to "pay for stuff". When are they ever going to learn. Further, NYRA increases takeouts across the board.

What business in the U.S. treats its customers with more contempt than horse racing? Yesterday, an across-the-board increase of 1% was added to already onerous takeout on all wagers on NYRA races, making takeout in NY State one of highest in the nation.

You got that right Ed.
