Here is a program from 1985 Sportsman's Park charts for a Wednesday night. Notice only 10 races and $71,200 in purses. Notice the TOTAL MUTUEL POOL FOR THAT NIGHT $888,759. Also, notice the on track attendance for a Wednesday night 5,442 fan's AT THE TRACK.

   Now tell me that the OTB's and Recapture hasn't ruined Chicago Harness Racing!!!!!!!

Look at that HUGE underlay.  7/1 and a 42/1 with Sowash in the bike -- and it pays $280...with the 4/5 OUT.  Guess things haven't changed all that much Wink

Best,

I think the Riverboats had more to do with the downfall than otb's.  40% decrease since the riverboats opened!

The most amazing thing from a Wednesday night in 1985 is Brian Pelling didn't stiff a 7/5 in the last race!  Maybe the pool being over 100k had something to do with it?
