Re: canterbury downs minnesota announces lowest horse track take out in North america.

I'm guessing the Pick 4 will still be the largest betting pool at CBY which will be a shame because it sends the wrong message.
Ellis Park's experiment with a 4% takeout on their Pick 4 didn't work out so well for the track. I hope the decreased takeout in the other exotics pools show significant growth which sends the right message.

Price wars are good for the horseplayer.

Now it's time to support Canterbury Downs (or is it Canterbury Park?).

The problem with canterbury is that they get 5000 people a day with an average handle of maybe $25, and I'm not kidding.

Canterbury Park reported increases in pari-mutuel handle, purses, and attendance for its 2015 meet that ended Sept. 12.


The Minnesota racetrack said all-sources wagering for the 70-day meet totaled a record $41.13 million, up 11.3% from the 2014 meet. Average daily attendance was up 5.3% to 6,695, track officials said.


Canterbury paid $12,569,540 in purses this year, up from $11,800,898 over 67 days in 2014, according to The Jockey Club Information Systems. Purses averaged $179,565 per program versus $176,133 last year.


Field size averaged 7.98 horses per race this year, down a bit from 8.20 in 2014, according to TJCIS statistics.


The 2015 meet was the longest at Canterbury since 1992.

Santa anita, Belmont, Gulfstream get 10x -20x the handle. I don't know anyone who could name more than one or two jockeys at this toilet. Low budget mickey mouse track in a shit state with terrible weather and slow horses with no name jockeys.

I was talking live handle, simulcast is like 3 times the live handle, keep in mind the purses are inflated by the money the indians give canterbury when they bought them off a few years back.

Who bets Canterbury park other than degenerates? Nobody cares about that track. If they didn't open the cardroom the place would be dust.

The sioux saved Canterbury. Handle per on track patron is miniscule.

That doesn't even make sense. Why would posting a winner change my opinion on this racetrack?

Stepping away from keyboard is probably good advice though blue.

Re: Canterbury Downs in Minnesota announces lowest horse track takeout in North America

As close as i can tell the live handle averaged $27 per patron in 2015, which means thousands of attendees dont actually bet. I know people that go there on thursdays "dollar day" promotion and all they do is drink and eat, maybe toss a couple $2 bets out there.

Horse racing is dying without casino or other subsidies.

I believe Matt Cruthers started out playing horses there.

Re: Canterbury Downs in Minnesota announces lowest horse track takeout in North America

It's too bad that the average horseplayer who plays at otbs across the country doesn't even consider takeout when betting a track.... Otherwise parx wouldn't get 10% or the volume they get now.

yes, because of me. I called them when I posted and they said they'd fix it.

I just checked for myself and it's fixed like you said.

Guy thanked me for reporting it and said he'd send it over right away to IT.

Guy probably never even been here. Been to all 50 states and this by far is the best of them all even with the cold weather.

from AQHA

Canterbury conducted 25 races May 20-22 and handled $2,024,819 on its live product, $478,057 more than opening weekend of its 2015 meet. The track’s per-race average handle was $80,992, or 26 percent more than the same period last year.

“The takeout reduction, and the positive industry reaction it produced, introduced many new horse players to the Canterbury Park product this weekend,” said track president Randy Sampson. “We expect more players nationally will discover the great value and improved quality Canterbury racing has to offer as the meet continues.”

On-track handle was up 25 percent and off-track wagers increased by 34 percent. On April 19, Canterbury officials announced a reduction in takeout to 15 percent on win, place, and show wagers and 18 percent on all multi-horse and multi-race wagers.

“We anticipated our out-of-state handle would increase significantly and the results of opening weekend were right in line with our expectations,” Sampson said. “We are also very encouraged by the significant increases in on-track attendance and handle as perfect weather and the takeout reduction combined to make for a very successful opening weekend for on-track business.
