H.A.N.A. Member Comments
I have decided to discontinue all of my wagering and ownership
activities in the sport of Thoroughbred Racing until I see a
drastic improvement in the structure of the sport. This is not
an easy decision, as it has been my vocation. The near total
disregard of the handicappers time, effort, and financial
support of the game has become intolerable. I have dealt
with the conditions the sports administrators have imposed for
decades, and I refuse to continue being pushed around.
- H.H. - Seattle, WA (US)
Great idea to unify the fans, long overdue. Thanks.
- F.B. - River Ridge, LA (US)
I have announced races and worked in publicity for Hollypark,
Santa Anita, Fairplex, Bay Meadows, Sun Ray Park.I work with the
company Pace to bring some new people to the sport.
- J.M. - Orange, CA (US)
Why are windfall scores taxed??
- J.B. - Freehold Townshup, NJ (US)
Lets get this game cleaned up.I'm an owner who would like to see
the playing field leveled.
- R.J. - Ft Lauderfale, FL (US)
As a CPA I am aware that the tax code is rather unfriendly to
horseplayers... the current mess on the ADW front is an issue
which should be put front and center on the agenda. Both of
these issues are contributing to a contractionary environment
for handle and the industry as a whole needs to be focused on
being expansionary in their policies instead.
- T.M. - Keswick, VA (US)
I would love to have uniform betting. Like for the pick 6 and
alternate scratch betting in all betting places. And ten cent
betting for all bettors. At the local track no ten cent betting
is allowed for anyone for any track. How nice!!!!!!!!! If you
complain they kick you out.
- G.A. - Chester, WV (US)
I am a horseplayer-turned-racing official and am interested in
the success of HANA.
- S.S. - NM (US)
Thanks for the reminder.
- Dennis - Baltimore, MD (US)

- Ed - Clifton Park, MA (US)
Thanks guys
- Pete - Worcester, MA (US)
Love your idea, heres hoping we can make an impact.
- Larry - Boston,, MA (US)
I am on board now.
- Don - East Troy, WI (US)
Let me know how when and where I can help.
- Richie P. - New Rochelle, NY (US)
- Lou - Staten Island, NY (US)
...Why wouldn't a horseplayer want to join?
- Jens - Santa Rosa, CA (US)
Best of luck in the endeavor!
- Patrick - Denver, CO (US)
Good work initiating this.
- Dale - Oregon City, OR (US)
I'm with you on the medical information.
- James- Framingham, MA (US)
Please take Mountaineer off the banner. The track is not one you
should have associated with an organization with HANA's mission.
It is singularly un-fan-friendly, and its main claim to fame is
the recent HBO horse slaughter special, in which the track
accomodates the knacker in collecting victims.
- Kevin - Pittsburgh, PA (US)
27 years old, my favorite sport is slowly being killed off.
- Jason - Toronto, ONT (CA)
I support HANA's primary goals of lowering takeout either
directly or effectively, and enabling every on-line bettor the
opportunity to play every race at every track from their ADW of
choice and to view each race live.
- Indulto - California (US)
In 30 years of going to the race track i have gotten about 5
cups of free coffee, 20 Hats, 25 Shirts, 10 Pies,1 clock, 5
Coffee mugs, and other Misc. junk. Not bad for losing close to
$250,000 over 30 years of going to the race track. Us rail birds
are treated like dirt. I don't go to the races much anymore But
still go to Saratoga every year. But that may be comming to a
stop. Because N.Y.R.A is screwing that up.
- Mike - Herndon, VA (US)
Being a handicapper is like being the Maytag repairman, it is a
lonely business. I am glad to see these groups forming because
there are some huge issues facing this sport. I'm not sure the
industry wants the opinions of the players, but maybe a united
voice can help. It's like chicken soup, it couldn't hurt!
- Jennifer - La Rue, OH (US)
- Gary - FL (US)
I like the idea of someone finally appreciating the folks who
keep the races going. On ADW I think the Kentucky horsemen are
just plain greedy. Seems they don`t just want a share of the
betting, but they want to be a partner.They are actually hurting
racing at a time that is`nt to wise to do so. Good expression
here is, They are cutting of their noses to spite their faces.
- Dave - Pacifica, CA (US)
I am now disabled. I was a writer for 25 years, a public
handicapper, I owned horses and then spent the last seven years
before my disability working as the media relations manager for
Canterbury Park in Minnesota. We worked very hard to put the
customer's needs first and foremost. Indeed, we players are
always referred to as "bettors," not customers. That in itself
has to change. I play horses on my computer now as I can not
drive 60 miles to play a horse. I am fed up with all the recent
stories regarding our game--They are the same headlines we saw
25 years ago. Hope I can assist by joining your organization.
- Sheila - St Paul, MN (US)
I am the former president and board chairman of National HBPA,
and also a board member of NTRA. I applaude the formation of a
players group and am glad to become a part of it. Since the
tracks have done nothing to solve the problems in racing, the
horsemen have tried to over the last few years and finally
formed THG. I think that a not-for-profit adw where the splits
between the tracks, horsemen and adws is about equal is the
solutionto the simulcast problem. Such an adw can be created
with less than 1/2 million dollars and would create a pricing
model for all adws to meet or suffer not getting all signals.
This adw could be owned by horsemen, players or anyone who wants
to contribute. I have been pushing for this adw for the last
several years....
- John - Temple, TX (US)
I live in Texas and I have not been able to bet on the
California tracks since the Santa Anita meet. I used to live in
Los Angeles, so most of those tracks are my favorites and I
understand the trends there. This ADW dispute is senseless
considering the fact it is the bettor that turns the "machine."
You can't get more from less. This debacle is just a matter of
egos and lack of communications. If we as horseplayers could
agree to miss some action and stage a strike to show our
displeasure, I think the message would be loud and clear. Get
the message out for a one day event.
- Wendell - The Woodlands, TX (US)
I am glad someone has started this. Let's keep the momentum
going and improve horse racing on this continent.
-Robert - Consecon, ONT (CA)
We horse players have needed represntation for a long time. I
hope this venue will grow large enough to have an effect
- Bobby - Canonsburg, PA (US)
Good to see an organization for real horse racing fans that
wants real reform in the thoroughbred industry
- Robb - Queens, NY (US)
Hopefully this org. will have some positive effect on the
industry.I for one have reduced my handle by half over the last
few yrs simply because of all the BS.I now find myself doing
things I would rather not do like betting offshore but that is
where the tracks are forcing me to play
- Michael - Hammond, IN (US)
- Jed - Honesdale, PA (US)
Clean up the game. As players we need to know everything is on
the up and up or else if doubt creeps in we tend to play a lot
less and effects are play. We need much stiffer penalties for
the trainers caught. By all lets eliminate trainig by cell
phone. Your caught you should not be allowed to race until
suspension is over. Forcing owners to find another trainer or
not race.
- Peter - Amsterdam, NY (US)
About time----right,Amen.
- Albert - Vincentown, NJ (US)
Enthusiastically agree with the list of current issues.
- William - Northfield, NJ (US)
This is "The Sport of Kings" and needs to be protected. I am
completely in favor of the horseplayer having his say in how
racing is conducted in all countries.
- Wayne - Calgary, ALB (CA)
Lifelong horseplayer, trying to reform the business as an ADW
operator. Wish you all the best of luck!
- Ian - Boynton Beach, FL (US)
I'm not sure how active I can be in HANA at the moment but I
support what you're doing 100%!
- Dana - New York, NY (US)
Let's help clean up this sport to make it safe and fun for the
horses. This is in the best interests for us players too
- Charles - Portland, OR (US)
I am very interested in what is happening to Horse Racing
- John - Tewksbury, MA (US)
I enjoy your blog and very much enjoy horse racing.
- Charles - Canonsburg, PA (US)
Would like to see the amount taxed on exotics changed to $1200
Same as slots in casios.
- Conrad - Potsdam, NY (US)
Thanks for your efforts
- Jerry - La Jolla, CA (US)
I just want to be able to bet without having to go through
- Sergio - Los Angeles, CA (US)
If you're trying to help the bettor/fan I'm behind that effort.
My suggestion is not to lose focus by tackling too many side
issues. Good Luck.
- Derek - Manhattan, NY (US)
Excited on the new site
- Anthony - Elk Grove Village, IL (US)
I worked 10 years for a Horsemens Group and learned some of the
ins and outs. As a betting customer in additon to my experience
in the equine industry, I could perhaps add some valuable
insight or perspective to your organization.
- Mary - Louisville, KY (US)
Long overdue; and your efforts are most appreciated. A sincere
Thank You
- Dan G - Temple Terrace, FL (US)
Sick and tired of what horsemen and track management are doing
to the game that I love. Lower the takeout or implement rebates
for everyone. The game needs to be competitive with other forms
of gambling. End the signal wars. Treat customers as if they
MATTER and amazingly handle will grow.
- J.P. - Jupiter, FL (US)
If I could legally bet online from Connecticut my handle would
go up significantly.
- J.S. - Darien, CT (US)
Lower takeout, only way to save the game. Unfortunately, tracks
are not in position to do this, nor do they have the will or
leadership. In the current economic environment cant see good
things for racing. But it is the greatest game. Good luck
- Mike - Las Vegas, NV (US)
Long time horse player dating back to 1972. The sport has become
big business with huge simulcasting revenues. This is good but
unfortunately cheating and greed have taken over the business
and most likely the sport will eventually self distruct. I play
very little today as compared to the 70s and 80s.
- Charles, Pittsburgh, PA (US)
...willing to help.
- Paul - Ottawa, Ontario (CA)
Best of luck in this endeavor, to all of us. I am a small-time
owner, based at CD, and of course I occasionally place a bet or
two. I make my living performing stand-up comedy and corporate
humor speaking, and naturally include horse racing material in
my presentations. After every show, the first question I get is
always Do you really own a racehorse? I have been the keynote
speaker at the Canadian Derby in Edmonton, and done comedy
events at other race tracks as well. My website is if anyone is interested, and I look forward to
hearing more from and about HANA.
- Mark - Louisville, KY (US)
I have playing mainly harness races for over 35 years. I am a
member of Big M harness @ yahoo groups. I think your mission
statement is dead on accurate. I would be willing to help in
whatever way Im able to help accomplish the mission of improving
conditions for the player.
- Arch - Columbus, OH (US)
Im a serious player who, because of my location, use ADWs and
feel like Im under assualt by the horsemen as represented by the
THG. Just let me know if theres anything I can do to assist in
your (our) cause.
- Tommy - Rogers, AR (US)
I have been a hobby handicapper since 1988 (NoCal). On my 20th
anniversary as a hobby handicapper, I have decided to become a
professional handicapper. The track signals to the ADWs must be
resolved. It makes no sense to have multiple ADW accounts to
play the track of your choice. When I moved to Texas in 1996
from northern California, I was amazed that I could not even
sign up to some ADWs (TVG) because I lived in Texas!!! So
exclusive TVG tracks are no longer available to me. To play TVG
tracks from Texas, I must go offshore. Im sure Im not the only
one having this problem. Universal track access by all US-based
ADWs is the answer. Thank you for creating an organization that
will give a voice to the horse player.
- Gary - Round Rock, TX (US)
Good idea - hope it has an impact. I have been in the utility
industry for over 30 years and, even as a regulated monopoly, we
dont ignore our customers the way this industry does. The lack
of industry leadership and cooperation, especially given the
state of the current economy and alternative forms of gambling,
is mind boggling. The powers that be seem to have a death wish.
Fortunately, the sport itself is so great, I believe it will
survive. I just wish I could bet on any track at any time
regardless of where I live - this is 2008.

Check out the latest updates to HANA members regarding issues that
affect all horseplayers.
HANA Harness Blog
Check out the latest from our Harness Racing members who are hard
at work on the HANA Harness Blog.
Our Goals:
ADW Signal Availability - All track signals available
to all licensed ADWs all the time. No exceptions and no
blackouts. Ever.
Takeout - Racing is losing significant market share to
other forms of gaming that are pricing their product in an
optimal way. Read HANA's position on takeout --click
Drugs - It's time for a national drug policy with
teeth. The game needs to be regulated in such a way that there
are absolutely no questions whatsoever about the integrity of
the game.
Pool Integrity - Odds changes after the bell, outright
theft through abuse of the cancel delay, failure to close and
merge pools when the gate opens, and an industry that
knowingly allows this to keep happening is no longer
The game needs a modern secure tote system fast enough to render
odds and payoffs in real time.
We repeat: The game needs to be regulated in such a way that
there are absolutely no questions whatsoever about the integrity
of the game.
Quality of the Product - Large competitive fields
Awareness - There is a gap between those running the
horseracing industry and the customer. This gap has been widening
for decades. But track management and horsemen's associations
continue to act as if no problem exists at all. An alienated
customer base, stagnation of handle growth, and a faltering industry
is the result.
They haven't listened to the individual horseplayer. Ever. But they
will listen to horseplayers in numbers. Together we can
accomplish that first step: We can make them aware.
Promoting Handle Growth - Every form of gambling except
horseracing has enjoyed explosive growth in the past two
decades. Instead of growing while other forms of gambling have
prospered, horseracing handle has actually stagnated. Why? Handle
stagnation is the direct result of an industry whose management
continually fails to listen to and address the needs of its
Handle is the one thing that drives the industry. Increased handle
means more revenue for race tracks. It means more money that can be
distributed back to horsemen in the form of purses. It should be
obvious to track management and horsemen that there's just one thing
and one thing only they should be focusing on: promoting handle
growth. But they haven't done that. Instead they manage to
operate the industry in a way that prevents handle growth instead of
promoting it.
Frankly, this hurts racing and we at H.A.N.A. have had enough.
By banding together in numbers we can finally get industry
management to listen to and address customers needs and wants. That
will only lead to one thing: Handle Growth. And when that
happens everybody wins.
