So after 9pm they'll show and take bets on  PICKLEBALL, Chinese basketball and Korean soccer?  WTF?  Harness horsemen won't be happy since late night is their time...

I guess this makes sense, TVG stands for Television Games, it never specified racing only.

Me too.    Betting on that is like betting on a random Little League game...

On a legit note Sports bettors who play horses and sports will migrate to move to more sports betting.

The handle for Belmont Stakes card was down 12.5 %. June. Let's see what Haskell card says.

However: Would the special full card pickleball Grade 1 matches be call The Kosher Cups.

Monmouth Park set a track record for handle for a non-Breeders’ Cup day when bettors wagered a total of $20,479,392 the year 2020; 14-race TVG.com Haskell Stakes day card. The record handle was achieved despite restrictions for on-track attendance due to COVID-19 guidelines.

The overall handle from all sources surpassed the previous non-Breeders’ Cup record of $20,024,509 set on Haskell Day on Aug, 2. 2015.

2021 Monmouth doubled on track handle and total meet handle was up.

Haskell card handle will be indicator (with consideration of Triple Crown results not robust)

Total handle on the 2022 Haskell day was $19,896,954, over $4 million more than last year. On-track handle was $1,303,642.

Apoears on line sports book gambling is good for racing. 

Doubt handle generated from simulcast/OTBs are on the rise.
