I disagree with beyer

“The most important facility that modern racetracks can offer is a suitable place to watch simulcast races.”

WHITE WELFARE: The racetrack that succeeds will be nurtured by aid to a dependent industry provided by the state, such as slotracing. At a successful track, as dramatically as state funding increases, so will horse racing's political contributions, number of political consultants, and political hires. The horse owners, trainers and jockeys will wheel out of their parking lots with bigger cars from "Most Favored Industry" induced increases in purses. The little guy living on the backside of Arlington Park and the bettor on the frontside will be the ones pressed for more juice to pay their latest burden to the politicians.

Obviously CB, you are correct.  There is no need to make a comfortable and friendly environment for your patrons.  I mean, there's no reason for Hawthorne to think about finding ways for me to drive 40 miles to play simulcast races at the track when I can do it all at home-online and get a 7% rebate to boot.
