Just a heads up about Belterra Park - new track code BTP...

Ron Tiller at HDW called several weeks ago and asked me how I wanted HDW to handle this.

FYI, River Downs in Cincinnati, OH was completely torn down and a brand new facility has been erected on the same site.

According to an article at Cleveland.com...

Belterra Park racino opens Thursday in Cincinnati:
http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2014/04/belterra_park_racino_opens_thu.html

"The original track was built in 1925 as Coney Island Race Track. Pinnacle relocated the track a slight distance to make room for the building, officials said."
--end quote


Because the facility features a brand new dirt surface and a brand new turf couse, I instructed HDW to do the following:

1. Use the new track code BTP in data and results files.

2. Compile all stats using new track code BTP.

3. Avoid blending new BTP stats with previously compiled stats from RDX/River Downs.

Bullet points:

Track Code: BTP (Why? Because BTP matches the first 3 characters of the data file name.)

Tote Code: BTP (Why? Because BTP matches the first 3 characters of the data file name.)

Notes: Belterra Park (Why? Because Belterra Park matches the track_name attribute of the track node in the clickable xml.)

Bullet points:

Track Code: BTP (Why? Because BTP matches the first 3 characters of the data file name.)

Tote Code: BTP (Why? Because BTP matches the first 3 characters of the data file name.)

Type: 1 (Why? Because 1 matches the "type" attribute in the urls of the SuperTote site.)

WinToteURL and ExaToteURL: Click the Assist Button after keying in Track Code, Tote Code, and Type to auto-generate. (Why? Because clicking the button is easier than keying the urls in manually.)

NHPlayDescr: Belterra (Why? Because Belterra matches the track name in .CSV WagerHistory files downloaded from the NHPlay site.)
