Live Racing Returns To Hollywood With Mini Doubleheaders
Hollywood Greyhound Track at Mardi Gras opened for live greyhound racing Sunday Night December 12 with a double header of racing action. Racing began with a first post of 7:30PM EST for the evening card and eight races were contested followed by a short 30 minute break and then at 9:30PM another eight races went to post comprising the late evening card. Hollywood will be running these mini doubleheaders every Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings throughout their live season which will extend into late spring.
Opening night showcased some great racing and the invaders from Dubuque, Iowa acquitted themselves quite well. A new innovation of Sectional Times was available for those patrons at the track and later this week it will be available to everyone no matter what venue you will be wagering from. Also the Jackpot Win Bet with 16% takeout (the lowest in the industry) was introduced and play in that pool was running about 100% higher than in previous years. Hollywood officials expect that the Jackpot Win Betting Pool will continue to increase as the season progresses and patrons become more aware of it and its benefits. The general feeling is that the Jackpot Win Bet is the only wagering product that has shown any potential for growth and the initial reaction to it has been positive on all fronts.
