Breeding incentive programmes and demand for California thoroughbred racing: is there a quality/quantity tradeoff?


  • Martin Smith


Both quantity of horses and quality stimulate demand for horse race gambling. This paper addresses the potential for a quantity/quality tradeoff due to breeding incentives for California thoroughbreds. Econometric analysis is used to assess the demand for quality and quantity of horses, and results suggest the likely net benefit of breeding incentives on the industry at large.
