11/23/07 - CASINO'S IN FLORIDA THREATEN TO DESTROY CALDER RACE COURSE
*INDIAN CASINO'S AND SLOTS IN FLORIDA HELP PUT CALDER IN THE RED*
With the nearby Hard Rock and other Seminole Indian properties within close proximity to Calder Race Course, gaming competition is fierce.
Unlike fellow race tracks, Pompano Park, and Gulfstream, Calder is in Miami/Dade county and cannot offer Slot Machines or Poker. The result....what is expected. Horse Racing is destroyed by casino gambling head to head.
Reduced attendance, reduced wagered dollars, all point to the inevitable. Calder Race Course is doomed to close if they are not given Slots and Poker.
*NEW MIAMI/DADE REFERENDUM SET FOR NEAR FUTURE*
The voters in Miami/Dade county will have the opportunity to vote in support of slots and poker at Calder, Miami Jai Lai, and Flagler Dog track.
In the past, those same voters rejected the opportunity. Lets hope for Calder's sake, they vote yes this time.
*CLEAR VIEW ON CASINO GAMING VS HORSE RACING*
Head to head, Horse Racing cannot and will not survive against casino gaming.
For the tracks to survive and produce a viable sport, they must have the additional revenu tools.
It is the height of anti-capitalistic liberlism to think the Federal govermenet has the right to give Native Americans the entire market on Casino Gambling and call this a free market.
In states that do not even want casino gaming, the Interior Dept is forcing them to accept it and it is a vice that many people reject.
While I love Horse Racing and do enjoy casino gaming, I cannot in good consience say that there is anything fair, legal, or right about Native Americans being given a right, an unnatural right to be allowed to offer casino gambling nationwide.
Casino gaming is Horse Racings worst enemy, because it takes away all of its fans in favor of mindless odds based gaming. Slots are the very worst, yet Americans cannot get enough of them.
No ethnic group deserves the right to have an entire market for themselves, that is blatantly Anti-American. Native Americans do not deserve to be awarded the exclusive nationwide rights to offer casino gaming. Whats next ? Drug sales and prostitution ?
