SACRAMENTO - The seven-member California Horse Racing Board voted unanimously to expand off-track betting to card rooms, sports bars and other businesses in the state. Their action allows implementation of legislation passed last year.
California's horse-race industry hopes this change will help increase income and awareness of the sport.
Off-track betting is now legal at three dozen locations consisting of racetracks, racing fairs and a few tribal casinos. There will now be up to 45 additional off-track sites.
Interested businesses must pay a $500 application fee, and the board must review and decide on the application within 90 days of its submission.
