    Betonallfours question

    simple question...where does the money come from to fund the purse guiaranties to Ellis park, Gulfstream and others that Scott Daruty and Tracknet had to do to keep the signals exclusive?

    Kent Stirling of the Florida HBPA stated they felt they had a gun to their head from Tracknet so they took the exclusive deal for this meet despite wanting to bring in Youbet and others on a deal that was acceptable to them.

    Now Illinois tracks are going with Youbet on a similar deal as florida's.

    But again, who is paying for these purse guaranties?
