Oaklawn Park racetrack in Arkansas will be offering a unique “Show Bet Bonus” during the 2017 Live Meet starting Jan. 13.
"We believe one of the biggest challenges in racing is attracting new fans and getting them to return," Director of Gaming and Wagering Bobby Geiger said.
To meet this goal, the track will effectively reduce the takeout on all show bets made at the Hot Springs oval. It’s hoped that by making the return on a show wager more financially attractive, new attendees will return to the track and increase their knowledge of horseracing.
The payoff on show wagers made at Oaklawn will now be higher than the payoff on the same show wager made off-track or through ADW services. The 2017 racing season runs Jan. 13th - April 15th.
