International Casino Scam Busted By OPP

15 people arrested, many were Casino employees. 7 outstanding arrest warrants as well
4 worked at Casino Rama in Orillia. Sleight of hand was used, not electronic devices. 'According to the FBI, the defendants allegedly bribed casino dealers and supervisors to perform false shuffles, any method of cutting the deck to make it appear it's mixed.'

Racino in PEI opens on Sunday

Ohio Senate OK's Instant Racing. Track operators to get 12% of the profits. Look for purse increase in Ohio.

Marquis Downs on a slight upswing

Canadian Hall of Fame inductees announced. Finally, Natalma made it.

Woodbine Bias Report from Brisnet Pick 7 Carryover is getting up there. There will be more than 200,000 up for grabs tomorrow. And 200K Canadian is more than 180k US these days. Lots of outside winners today and the track has some give to it allowing for off the pace runners to have a chance.

In the first leg (the 2nd race), Banker's Street looks like an immortal lock. I can't believe she is in for a tag. $80K is a lot of money, but she is a 3 year old Canadian bred who ran an absolutely huge number two starts ago. I wonder if she hurt herself in the Fury.
