FRANKEL WINS BY 6 & MORE NEWS

As expected FRANKEL took the early lead and went on to a six length victory in Saturday’s G1 2000 Guineas at Newmarket Race Course in England.  The 3-year-old colt is now undefeated in six starts.  He is now listed as a  2-1 favorite if he goes postward in the G1 Investec Derby on June 4.  You can bet that Derby on Idabet as this colt goes for greater stardom.

Despite 13 days of rain over its 15 day meet, Keeneland wrapped up last week with the third largest attendance of a spring meet when over 240,000 fans poured into the historic track.  Once again, it proves quality meets with large fields can be most successful in today’s racing climate.

New York Governor Cuomo blasted a decision by the New York Racing Commission to farm out its online and phone wagering business to Twinspires owned by Churchill Downs.  Of course Twinspires currently prohibits many ADW’s including Idabet.com from taking wagers on the racetracks they own.  Those supporting NYRA’s decision say they are simply buying into an established system that will work for them while others question why the business cannot be operated in New York with employees living in New York.  The demise of the NYC OTB earlier this year prompted NYRA to make a move as it was not able to keep up demand with new online players.  Of course, Idabet.com says, If you want to bet New York or had a NYCOTB account, we are the friendliest and most caring service in the marketplace.  Just join us at Idabet.com

On the flip side, Finger Lakes will be forced to cut 9 of 13 stakes races this year as a result of lower income from the loss of the NYCOTB business.  That service provided Finger Lakes with its largest source of handle and so far has not been replaced resulting in the cut in stakes.  Once again, if you want in on the action at Finger Lakes, then head over to Idabet.com.

Parx racing has been shut down this week as live racing returns to Atlantic City Racecourse.  AC is known for it’s majestic turf course, though it’s a bit early in the year for it to be in its premier shape like it was years ago during its summer meet.  AC operates for a week to satisfy a state law that requires some live racing to maintain year round simulcasting.  Parx (Philadelphia Park) owns the track and you can bet ATLANTIC CITY during its week of good turf racing on Idabet.com

Delaware Park returned to action Saturday, but will close for a week until next Saturday.  Live handle remains depressed at under $250,000 for an opening day card.  Here’s hoping early efforts to promote live racing will get business back up and some fans to move from the slots for a while and head down to the rail.
