Slots in Maine Leading to Better Racing

Money generated by Hollywood Slots in Bangor has increased four straight months and the increases are growing larger. The total gross for March was almost $46 million, up $7 million from February and $17.2 million more than November, the opening month. The total net revenue for five months is more than $12 million of which $367,744 goes to Maine harness racing purses.

Higher purses attract better horses and that certainly is evident at Scarborough Downs where all-time records are being smashed weekly. Never before have horses trotted and paced so fast this early in the season....
