Yes, the all sources handle on Meadowlands races went up only 0.6% which means if not for the on-track increase, the handle would have dropped as the export of the Meadowlands signal resulted in a 2.4% loss. Most of the loss of off-track wagering is coming from the West Coast because the Meadowlands tends to finish earlier than they have in the past; as the Meadowlands has taken the position of post time is post time unlike some other tracks and they are trying to improve the track experience by keeping the races moving. Of course management always wants more wagering on their signal but remember a dollar bet on track is worth a lot more to the track and horsemen than the same dollar being bet at a simulcast or ADW site. This is why the new management team's priority is to increase attendance and on track wagering. They must be smiling this morning.
One month does not make a meet, but compared to last January, management at the Big M must be feeling pretty good right now,
