I hate to nit pick PP but the article above indicates that it isnt 3.83 billion turnover but in fact $28.7 million on 3.83 billion revenue
For a while now whenever I had checked the Tote Win Pool holds for corresponding meetings a year in between you could see a significant drop in holdings which I had always put down to the Corporate Bookies gaining a piece of the pie at TABCorp's expense.
Taree Cup 2017 NSW TAB Win Pool totals: $399,101
Taree Cup 2018 NSW TAB Win Pool totals: $493,178
(each race rounded down to nearest dollar)
That is a whopping 23.5% increase. Why?
2017 had 93 runners. 2018 had 94 runners.
2017 track Good 3

On Sunday 20th August 2017 (Taree Cup day) there were 7 Australian domestic meetings covered at Taree, Moruya, Ballarat, Pakenham, Sunshine Coast, Devonport and Kalgoolrie.
Today there were meetings at exactly the same 7 sites.
Wonder if the demise of William Hill has anything to do with it? Or maybe the POCT? Or is it just a statistical outlier. Will have to check another meeting.
