Charles Town sets handle mark


Charles Town set a record for total handle on its Charles Town Classic program last Saturday.

A total of $4,827,105 was wagered on the 13-race card, surpassing the $4,398,985 bet on Classic Day in 2013. More than half of the total was bet on the Charles Town Classic itself, which set a single-race track record for handle of $2,423,782.
