    Laurel's average handles rose during winter meet
    ┬áLaurel Park closed its 2015 winter meet Sunday with total average handle up 14.6 percent overall and 15.8 percent on its live product. Laurel's average daily handle was $1.764 million compared with $1.540 in 2014. Daily export handle increased 20.2 percent from $1.179 million in 2014 to $1.417 million this winter. Laurel's increases on average handle came despite a mid-Atlantic dispute and the loss of 10 live days of racing — 12 total days — because of wintry weather and track conditions. Despite the lost days, total wagering was down only 5.4 percent, from $79.8 million to $75.5 million. Live racing in Maryland shifts to Pimlico beginning Thursday. First-race post is 1:10 p.m. Along with the introduction of the 10-cent Rainbow 6, Pimlico will offer a Pick 5 with an industry low 12 percent takeout.
