OTB BETTING HANDLE RISES SLIGHTLY

The Western Regional Off-Track Betting Corp. recorded a slightly greater betting handle in January and February than it did for the same period in 1997, President Martin Basinait said last week.

"We handled $27,807,881, up $256,274, or 1 percent above figures for the first two months of 1997," he said.

Basinait also said WROTB directors and staff continue to study the possible purchase of the Batavia Downs racetrack.

"We will know whether WROTB will buy it or not by June 30," he said.
