mardigras Posted March 11, 2020 Share Posted March 11, 2020 Imagine a NZ meeting getting the same level of interest on a site like Betfair. Today we had individual horses with betting volumes in the 1.5 - 2.0m bracket. Even though I oppose racefield fees on turnover, that's the way they do it. 1.5 - 2% on that level of betting is $25 - $30k - that's not on the market - that's on just one horse within one market. At Cheltenham, on the win markets, that would be $70-100k+ per event from the win market alone. This isn't even counting the volumes being bet elsewhere. I know this isn't something NZ could achieve - we do well to get betting volume of $10k on an entire race through that operator. We should be embracing different operators for meeting different needs. Not thinking we can cater for every punter ourselves. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
