Cotolo’s Harness Review, News And Notes
Ohio’s harness racing business is showing signs of resurgence only three months after the opening of the state’s first racetrack with a casino. Attendance is up, racing fans are betting more and many think the addition of video lottery terminals in Ohio will help draw more people to Ohio’s tracks and increase tracks’ purses. Scioto Downs in Columbus records purses are up and betting on live races is up about 35 percent.
