I have some friends in Cleveland, Ohio. They have worked in racing for 30 years, and have waited for the “life raft” of alternative gaming to create a new day. A time where racing pitfalls were to be solved, and revenue generated. The time has come, and things are not as smooth as planned. At my […]
