Beulah Park near Columbus, Ohio says it will offer lower takeout on exotic wagers when the fall meet opens October 10. Takeout has been lowered to 15% on Pick 3s, Pick 4 and Pick 5, and the minimum wager on those bets and on the trifecta is now .50.
Takeout on multi-leg wagers was 22.5 percent during Beulah's last meet. The track says one pick four and one pick five will be offered each day.
Beulah has also added Equibase's new QR barcode to the program pages, which allows smartphone users to instantly retrieve scratches and changes on race day and get links to replays following each race.
Beulah is owned by Penn National Gaming, which has said it plans to relocate the track 70 miles southwest to Dayton if it gets regulatory approval. The company wants to build a casino in Columbus.
