NEHBPA & Suffolk Downs Close to a Deal _ Oklahoma Joined other HBPA Chapters and also pulled their Signal
Suffering Suffolk Downs now requests permission from NEHBPA to Restore Signals after Maryland joins Fl., Ohio & Oregon HBPAs in Pulling their Signals in Support of Fellow NE Horsemen.
In January the NEHBPA pulled the simulcasting signal from the New York Racing Association, and then horsemen in Ohio, Florida, and Oregon withdrew their consent. Now the Maryland horsemen have lent their support so races from Aqueduct, Gulfstream Park, Tampa Bay Downs, Beulah Park, Portland Meadows, and Laurel Park cannot be simulcast at Suffolk. Under Massachusetts law, state residents are also prohibited from betting those tracks through their advance deposit wagering accounts.
WAY TOO UNITE, WAY TO GO!
