De Francis not displeased with Wednesday handle

November 12, 1993|By From Staff Reports

Laurel-Pimlico president Joe De Francis was not discouraged by the track's handle on the first Wednesday of live racing this fall.

"We did about $1 million in state and I thought that was good, considering that the same Wednesday last year was Veterans Day," said De Francis. "It was a relevant start.

"What you have to compare is what we did recently with simulcasts on Wednesday and live racing Sunday and the live card Wednesday and Sunday simulcasts we're now running. The total gross business is about equal."
