Exciting Night at the Horse Races, But What Changed

horse racing at the local track

Going out for an exciting evening out at the horse races. Have a little dinner at “Jockey’s only Eatery”, Check out all the horses in the Lounge, (I mean outside the lounge)  overlooking the racetrack. …but the Horse racing Industry has changed.

Where are all the people?

After not being at the races for a long, long time, the excitement was still there, but I have to confess, the betting, well the betting was still, a disappointing system.

“The by guess or by golly rule”. I never knew how to read the program then and I remember

….O Yah ..  I still don’t.

 Horse racing Industry has changed, but how.

It’s still a good entertaining night out, but I noticed the horse racing industry has changed through the years. I remember the last time I placed a bet, the rows in front of the ticket agents were at least 20 deep, people all trying to place their bets and that’s 10 tellers. The racing industry was a vibrant place to go on a Thursday or Saturday night. There was always a good payout, well, “ONLY” what I heard!

I remember always rubbing shoulders with somebody, everybody. It was wall-to-wall people. And that’s how busy and exciting it was back then.

On the news not long ago, our previous Provincial Government said the horse racing industry should start sustaining itself. We are NOT helping subsidize this industry anymore! That was a total surprise; I thought they were doing well.

When we went, I did notice that the attendance was down, and certainly not the way I remember it… Maybe a fewer customer,  NO…  a lot fewer customers!

So what happened?

In the years that we went, it seemed to have always sustained itself “at least at face value”. Everyone was betting large, and there looked to be no shortage of people. So what went wrong?

Like most industries, whoever has the power and control to make changes, do, while the rest of us have to either follow along and adapt to the changes, or? Fall behind. I guess the term, Collateral Damage would apply.

It’s somewhat unfair that being away from the horse racing, we remember the before and after years. But one thing has changed, Our government incorporated ‘One Arm Bandits’ in the same building as the horse races, and I know that’s been in place a long time, so it’s not like I just came out of the WOODS, but I think it has  affected the horse racing industry as a whole. Now don’t misunderstand, our government brings in good tax revenue to help sustain our way of life and that’s a good thing.

But I am sure- the slots took lots of patrons away from the racing end and somewhat, lured them into …. “The other room!”.

So yes, I hope the horse racing industry recovers from other peoples (government) decision making because I think you get better entertainment and a bigger bang for your buck betting on the ponies.

The latest article I read is that our government will continue to help out the horse racing industry, because, maybe, they’re feeling a little guilty. …”NOT”  Well they should, the horse racing was a big industry and they changed the whole dynamics.

At the horse races, the excitement is still there and  after being absent for a few years, I still think my chances of winning are better than in the “other room”   (only my opinion),

Fresh air is gooood, no big line up at the tellers, it’s free to get in, you can bring your kids for a night of entertainment, (get them hooked on gambling) good food, and maybe at the end of the racing evening, you might still have jingle left over to buy a cold beverage/beer.  I still think the chances of winning are better at the horse races. A lot better.

$2.00 bet x 10 races= cheap entertainment.

“What’s not to like!”

Heck.;  This is only my observation and only my opinion.  But, I still had a good time
