Parity for Americans at The Raceway at Western Fair District

London, Friday, May 18, 2012 -- The Raceway at The Western Fair District is pleased to announce that, beginning with tonight’s Molson Pace elimination program, it will now have the ability to offer .20 cent minimum wagers to its loyal fan base in the United States.

Canadian customers had already been able to wager on these offerings at the .20 cent increment.

“We’re very happy to be able to start offering this with tonight’s program,” said The Raceway General Manager Ian Fleming. “These are two of our most popular wagers and we’re pleased that we can now offer the same minimum to our valued American customers as well as Canadians.”

The new offering comes after significant testing between United Tote and the CPMA over the past several months.

This news comes just in time for this year’s Molson Pace program, next Friday, May 25, where a $15,000 guaranteed pool pick-4 will be offered on the card.
