Gambling expansion bill advances in New Jersey

BY Leonard Postrado

Just when everybody thought that the gambling expansion plan is already dead in the water, New Jersey lawmakers made a stealthy move to forward a bill that calls for the introduction of alternative gaming areas in at least a few of the state’s horse racetracks.

Gambling expansion bill advances in New JerseyThe move of state legislators to advance Bill A4255 came a month after New Jersey residents overwhelmingly rejected a ballot measure that would have allowed casinos in North Jersey

Politico reported that the new proposal, which hurdled the Assembly gaming committee after a 4-3 vote, may allow the expansion of casinos to the race tracks without amending the state constitution or holding another election.

To be specific, A4255 will allow Monmouth Park and the Meadowlands Racetrack could partner with existing Atlantic City casinos to create what supporters described as “internet cafes” offering online gambling.

If enacted as written, New Jersey could potentially create the sort of “racino” operations that dot New York State and became a multi-billion-dollar industry after starting with simple “video lottery terminals.”

Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau:

In January 1946, the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau (TRPB) was incorporated as a private investigative agency whose principal mission was to address issues of integrity and security in the Thoroughbred horse racing industry. A wholly-owned subsidiary of the TRA, TRPB represents a unified effort by TRA-member associations to maintain high standards, protect the legitimate business interests and integrity of the sport, and foster and maintain public confidence.

Equibase Company LLC is the race data provider for the Thoroughbred racing industry in North America, charting every Thoroughbred race run in the United States and Canada and disseminating the information throughout the vast international network of simulcast wagering.

Subsidiaries of the TRA and The Jockey Club formed Equibase in a 1990 partnership to accumulate the racing data necessary for the unfettered growth of simulcast wagering. Prior to that time, the Daily Racing Form had been the sole collector of chart data and the dissemination of past performance information.

Recognizing the broadest possible availability of race data in daily racing programs was integral to the growth of simulcasting revenues for the tracks, the TRA found The Jockey Club a capable and eager partner in undertaking the technological and logistical issues association with building a data information company.

With the advent of the internet for general consumer use in the mid-Nineties, Equibase quickly found itself well-positioned to enter and serve the fast-growing world of electronic commerce.

Equibase is the sole owner of TrackMaster, whose line of direct-to-consumer products include a wide variety of  handicapping and selection tools for all types of bettors.

Fred Russell-Grantland Rice
TRA Sports Writing Scholarship

The Fred Russell-Grantland Rice Scholarship, begun in 1956, originally was named in honor of the late Grantland Rice, a Vanderbilt alumnus and one of the best known sports writers of the 20th century. In 1986, the name was changed to also honor the late Fred Russell, another Vanderbilt alumnus who helped guide the scholarship and its recipients. A $500,000 grant was made on behalf of the TRA in 1986 to ensure the future of this valuable stipend. Click here for a list of previous winners.
