LADBROKE REPORTS WEEKEND HANDLE

 LADBROKE REPORTS WEEKEND HANDLE
 MEADOW LANDS, Pa., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Ladbroke at The Meadows


today reported a total systemwide harness handle of over $600,000 on both Saturday and Sunday evenings and it was the first time in the history of the track that such high numbers were ever recorded this early in the season.
 The Saturday night harness handle topped out at $604,044 while the Sunday handle hit $601,954. The numbers were extremely impressive, a track spokesman said. Wagering handles at the off-track wagering locations in New Castle, Pa.; Harmar, Pa.; and Greensburg, Pa., remained strong, and, in addtion, big numbers were reported out of Philadelphia Park wagering on The Meadows races. In addition, with the relatively mild temperatures over the weekend, attendance on-track was up and so was the wagering handle, thus putting the total wagering handle for Saturday and Sunday at over $1.2 million.
 Ladbroke Racing will debut for the public its fourth off-track location in Johnstown, Pa., this coming Saturday.
