I don't have much to say, other than bravo. Mostly, I'm just posting to try to meet my gambling topic quota ;)

I just thought it was nice to see a gambling house exercise the most basic of PR. With so many stories of asinine hassles, it's nice to see one that got it right (even if it was, really, a completely obvious call).

Churchill is definitely the classiest racetrack in the world. Also, $14k to them is like a rounding error anyway.

I thought the last sentence of the article was great. People wanted autographs and he asked if they would prefer a $100 bill. Why doesn't that ever happen to me.

Having gambled at virtually all North American tracks and raced horses at 10 different tracks including Churchill Downs, I'm a 100% sure that classey racetrack is an oxymoron......

" According to Kentucky administrative regulations, if there is an overpayment as a result of the calculation of a payout, the track is responsible and the patron holding the ticket does not have to refund the money. "

Gee, wonder if that influenced their decision !!!

Same wonderful track that just raised the take from 16 to 17.5% on WPS and exotics from 19% to 22%.


And upper management salaries only increased a mere 420% from last year.
