There is no issue for Santa Anita. The money can be written off in a number of ways. I believe you are confusing a "prize" received versus "gambling winnings" for the recipient.
A pure prize would be something like going to a mall and filling out a slip for a drawing and winning a TV set. Clearly you have not gambled to win and consequently you cannot write-off gambling losses against the prize winnings. At Santa Anita you MUST gamble in order to win the bonus. So the winnings result from gambling.
Santa Anita, I believe, could put everything on one signer. It may be that they don't want to rewrite the software to take into account the different set of rules for different bettors. There may be the small benefit of no withholding in circumstances where neither the winnings nor the bonus exceed $5,000 but where the total of the two do. To be consistent with my position, I would have to believe that withholding should take place if the total exceeds $5,000.

Thanks Andy for posting the rules and regulations regarding the bonus. I had a question that was answered in the
thread. I use my TOBA card to get into the clubhouse and also have a Thoroughbreds card that I don't use much
anymore. So I can now scan my card at the live teller window or SAMS machine prior to making the Pick 6 wager
to qualify for the bonus.
Just hit the 5000 mark with last post. Hooray!!!!! Will never catch Lester though as he is way out in front of me.
It will be interesting to see the handle. Last year they ran on a Thursday and the pool was $137,329. There was a carryover going into Friday last year so we really can’t compare that day. Last Friday ( December 30th) there was no carryover and the pool was $138,432.
Kermit, thanks for the advise, and I am glad to see the frog back.
Good for the three who hit the wager.
