Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club (West Palm Beach, FL)

Now that ammendment 3 passed in Florida, will this cause the closing of the poker room of the kennel club?

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club (West Palm Beach, FL)

Text from Amendment 13:

...The failure to conduct greyhound racing or wagering on greyhound racing after December 31, 2018, does not constitute grounds to revoke or deny renewal of other related gaming licenses held by a person who is a licensed greyhound permitholder on January 1, 2018, and does not affect the eligibility of such permitholder, or such permitholder’s facility, to conduct other pari-mutuel activities authorized by general
law....

With or without the passage of this amendment the poker room is/was in danger....this law passing is a win for the track owners as live dog racing is a huge financial burden on these businesses and only in place due to the states requirement to conduct simulcast and poker room activities. The dog track owners have wanted the state to ban greyhound racing for many years instead it has been a requirement to operate their lucrative poker rooms.

The risks to the poker room was always on both sides of the ball. Sell to a developer (or develop themselves) due to the losses derived from live racing limiting the profitability of the business. Sell to a developer (or developing themselves) due to now having so much land sitting there collecting dust.

"Amendment 13 would "decouple" racing from other forms of gambling, allowing the racetracks to keep their card rooms without the presence of greyhounds; (PBKC owner Joe) Rooney says his track would reconfigure its footprint, sell most of its 19 acres to developers and reduce its current staff of 600 to about 100."

The Palm Beach Kennel Club, is, until racing is completed, the number one dog track in the US. It was more than profitable. We did not want to lose that aspect of our business at any time. It is true that some tracks were in support of the amendment, due to the fact that there were not profitable.

As far as poker goes at the Palm Beach Kennel Club? Stay tuned. We have some exciting announcements coming in the very near future.

Take care,

Noah

Thanks for the info. Would have been good to have it before the vote though, for all the dog tracks, to make an informed decision. Too late now.

Thank you and yes, I'm sure PBKC was one of the few profitable dog racing programs remaining as one of the top-2 handles in the industry along with the Tampa/Derby Lane meet. I was referring to the industry as a whole.

Noah-

How about now lobbying for licensing and regulation of online poker, operated by the existing licensed cardrooms? As poker is a pari-mutuel activity under Florida law, a bill to authorize this will not require a voter referendum. It also doesn't violate the Seminole compact. Reminder: I have a 36-page legislative bill ready to go.

Anyone know what the reconstruction plans, remodeling plans or relocation plans the Kennel Club poker room when they eliminate dog racing?

Re: Palm Beach Kennel Club (West Palm Beach, FL)

I'll be here next month and am hoping to see a dog race before they go away. Whats the race schedule? I see that races start at either 1 pm or 7 pm, but can't tell when the last race in a block would be. Also, is the track close to the poker room (as in would it be easy to take an orbit off to watch a race, or would it take too long?)

Races start at 1PM most days and I believe they end around 6-7PM. The track is adjacent to the poker room. You can see the track from inside the poker room. There are large glass windows, but a lot of the view is blocked so yo'ull want to walk outside if you actually want to watch the whole race.

The final race in the afternoon would be around 4:30pm. On days they run a doubleheader the final race at night would be around 11:30pm. You can see the track through the windows of the poker room at ground level. It is a 30 yard walk to the grandstand area you can either watch it from upstairs or walk outside to watch live.
