A report issued last year by Spectrum Gaming Group concluded that operating the two tracks “does not appear to be in the best interest of West Virginia taxpayers.” The report cited a drop in betting from $35 million in 2004 to just $16 million in 2013. Spectrum also said some days as few as 50 people show up to watch and wager. Additionally, Spectrum said, subsidies from other forms of gambling at the tracks account for 95 percent of the purses and account for about $5 million annually to a handful of breeders.
