John still nice handle for the Meadowlands on Saturday but it dropped a bit compare to last week and had
one more race last night. Still off to a flying start though and hope it continues to press forward.

January 5, 2013 12 Race Card= $ 3,501,091.00
January 12,2013 13 Race  Card=$ 2,890,130.00

I wish they would break it down for attendance and on sight handle to get a better read on the money.

You did. Of course that is the component all tracks need to see growth in. It is about a 6:1 ratio in revenue split as compared to all off track sources of handle. Gural is doing more than any other track owner.
 But, he has a larger carrot. You also have heard him say many times, ..."casino/slots at The Meadowlands..."

I was shocked myself at that on site $$ number.
I realize on track attendance is nowhere near it was in the past, I would have thought the number would be higher, but JG gave an honest response, which doesnt shock me, because he is a straight shooter.

You are probably right. The on site $$$ money could have been more over this past weekend. I was basing the $300k on what I believe Gural said in his Mike Schneider interview. I was not aware there was such a disparity between off site Meadowlands betting and on-site. I would have thought 4/5 off site to 1/5 on site, but opening week numbers reflected something closer to 9/10 to 1/10.
