LONE STAR PARK’S PANACEA?

|

Lone Star Park has been struggling to compete with other racetracks that offer big purses. Better horses and bigger fields head elsewhere, to Oaklawn, Fairgrounds, and the like. LSP people have begged for slot machines to help goose the prize pools, but Austin has resisted. Colonial Downs in Virginia has a similar problem: needing slots, but not being allowed to have them. Their possible solution: “historical racing,” aka betting on horse races that have already happened. Worth a shot here.
