Ellis Park Offers Pick Four With Only A 4% Track Takeout

Ellis Park to offer Pick Four with only a 4% track takeout.

One of the best things that new track owner Ron Geary accomplished in the past 48 hours was securing the right to offer a Pick-Four with only a 4 percent takeout. Usually the takeout is a gaudy 22.5 percent. The bet will be offered daily on the final four races.

Great move. This will get people handicapping the last four at Ellis Park and will probably drive more action to other types of bets as well. Geary is one of the very few track owners who understands the gambler. He could be a huge part in getting reduced track takeouts everywhere. As stated before, track takeouts rates should be at 10% or less, if racing wants to grow and attract new blood.

I'm going to start doing track variants for Ellis Park starting today:)

Seneca Nations open temporary casino in Buffalo. Only 124 slots right now. Lots of lineups. Legality of it is still up in the air. This is not good news for Fort Erie race track.

18 year old Scott Zeron, son of Rick, ready for driving debut at Hanover today.

Look for Constant Montpellier to get hotter soon at Woodbine. Especially on the turf course.
