Feeling Lucky

This Saturday is the 139th annual Travers Stakes at the Saratoga Racetrack. It's a big deal in these parts. I won't be partaking, though, in the wagering. Vacation has left me a bit short, and, honestly, I'm not much of a handicapper.

However, in honor of the big race, check out the Center for Gaming Research. It's a website designed & operated by (where else?) the University of Nevada - Las Vegas. The site is geared towards three distinct groups of people:

* The academics, for whom a users guide is tailored for researchers of all ages (including us!).
* The media/industry guide helps those in the media and casino industry find the information they need.
* The "just curious" section, which is broad information aimed at those just getting started.

The information available is not just for the state of Nevada, so it's relevant to a blog being written in New York.
