Parlays are for suckers, just like racing has some awful bets.

As far as your first statement, its relative. Its easy to say who wants to make 90 for 100, as if 15-1 shots grow on trees. Lots of racing winners don't offer much better.

I've been a racing bettor for close to 40 years. A serious sports handicapper for 15.

Betting on sports is FAR more profitable than horse racing. You haven't even mentioned the ridiculous takeouts.

I make thousands a year betting on sports. I wish the NFL played 52 weeks a year.

I have had some profitable days at the track, and nothing is more FUN than betting on horse racing. Its not effing close. But I also know its an extremely tough game for the average person to win. My sports winnings dwarf my racetrack winnings in my lifetime.

Today's generation wants action and they want it NOW. Live bets, same game parlays, all the other bullshit. I NEVER hear ANYONE under 40 even mention horse racing.

Until racing finds a way to market to the younger generation, the decline will continue. I have taken many to the track, and they have a great time. But it isn't something that makes them want to wager everyday.

All of this social media crap and "fun time" at the races........its about gambling. Period.

Until they can find a way to have people put money thru the windows, nothing else matters.
