Scanning the landscape, this weekend brings a new wave of new value for horseplayers.
- Frank Stronosaurus has initiated an 18% pick 5 for this Pimlico meet.
- Woodbine opens tomorrow for thoroughbreds with a 2% drop in tri takeout
- Woodbine offers a $100,000 guarantee on their harness pick 4 tomorrow (and through the month)
- Northfield Harness, who dropped their rake to 14% on several bets this month, has a guarantee on their P4 pool starting tonight, via the USTA. Free PP's too!
- Balmoral Park, who lowered their pick 4 take to 15% last year and upped handles on the bet 66+%, is also participating in the guarantee's. Saturday night it starts there.
- Cal Expo, who said a big fat no to a raise in takeout in CA when they could have, has upped their guarantee on their previously lowered take pick 4 (it's 15%, versus SA's 23.68%) for Saturday. Their handle is now approaching modern records. Good for them.
