I've had a go at predicting the Betfair schedule for Sept. It's not as straightforward as usual as we transition between seasons and the anticipated new tracks go live. I've assumed existing tracks continue to be covered as before. Whether we get coverage of all these cards on the busier days remains to be seen.


Tracks changing schedule:
> NYRA racing moves to Belmont for the autumn with last date at Saratoga on Mon 06 Sep and first date at Belmont on Thu 16 Sep.
> Finger Lakes is scheduled to move to a 4-day week, adding Thu, now running Mon/Tue/Wed/Thu from Mon 13 Sep. I have marked the Thu dates TBC for now due to their recent struggle with entries.
> Charles Town move to a 4-day week for the winter, adding Wed, now running Wed/Thu/Fri/Sat from Wed 15 Sep.
> Penn take a break from Sat 25 Sep, back racing Fri 08 Oct.

Tracks beginning season:
> Remington Park racing season begins on Fri 20 Aug running nighttime Fri/Sat at first then adding Wed/Thu later.
> Laurel Park racing season begins on Thu 09 Sep running daylight Thu/Fri/Sat/Sun.
> Zia Park racing season begins on Sun 26 Sep running daylight Sun/Mon/Tue. I have marked their fixtures as TBC for now as don't know if Betfair will be covering the track this year. 
> Santa Anita racing season begins on Fri 01 Oct running daylight Fri/Sat/Sun.

Tracks ending season:
> Pimlico racing season ends on Sun 22 Aug.
> Canterbury Park racing season ends on Thu 16 Sep.
> Evangeline Downs racing season ends on Sat 18 Sep.
> Monmouth racing season ends on Sun 26 Sep. I have marked their remaining fixtures as TBC as not all their cards are being covered at the moment.

I'm crossing my fingers to have Zia back to the exchange markets at least on Mondays and Tuesdays, the days with less racetracks running. Next October and November on Monday and Tuesday we are going to have just 4 racetracks the first two days of the week, Parx, Turf, Finger and Mountaineer.

Zia is owned by Penn National, like Charles Town, Sam Houston and Mahoning Valley, so I believe that the problem here is the mixed racecard with quarter horse racing. However, Zia Park and Sunland were alway here all days of the week with mixed racecards until 2 or 3 years ago. As a loyal exchange customer I don't care if the quarter horse races have low liquidity. The important thing for me is to have those racetracks here, because there are great opportunities in their thoroughbred races. One alternative is to offer on exchange just the thoroughbred races for these meetings with mixed racecards.

In 2019 Zia Park were running mostly 4 days per week with 2 cards of QH and 2 of TB. Betfair covered only the TB dates.
In 2020 this changed to 3 days per week with almost all cards being mixed QH/TB. Betfair only covered one single card on 11 Nov which was the only full TB card they ran.
I've not seen any info on how Zia Park will be running this year but the fact they have stuck to 3 cards per week as per 2020 suggests they may well all be mixed cards again. Sad

Emerald Downs has been added to the schedule for Sun 22 Aug. They are mid-way through their season and race Thu/Sat/Sun through to Sun 05 Sep then Sat/Sun through to Sun 26 Sep. Sun they race daylight although right on the west cost so still late for us. Thu/Sat they night race which would mean first post for us around 2am. Will be interesting to see if all cards are covered going forwards.

The Penn racing card scheduled for Tue 24 Aug has been moved to Thu 26 Aug, so Penn will be racing Wed/Thu/Fri this week.

Canterbury not loaded so far for tonight Wed 25 Aug. Probably because they have 4 Quarterhorse races on the card.

Finger Lakes is running today, Mon 06 Sep, but not covered on Betfair. Monmouth and Remington haven't been covered for some time now and seem to have dropped out of the list of regulars.

Finger Lakes have confirmed they won't be running on Thursdays during the month of Sep. They hope to add Thu from October but this remains TBC.

Prairie Meadows has popped into the schedule for tonight. They race nighttime mixed Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred cards most Mon/Fri/Sat/Sun from May through to Sat 25 Sep.

Parx have added a special racing date on Sat 25 Sep featuring eight stakes races including the Pennsylvanian Derby.

Prairie Meadows made an appearance, then it was gone. First few races quarterhorse last 8 or so thoroughbreds but far too difficult for Betfair to leave those races up.
Report Zephyrus September 26, 2021 5:51 PM BST
In the past they used to have a separate Quartehorse meeting, I didn't know that now they have mixed cards.
