Nebraska Racing Commission Overturns Earlier Ruling; Simulcast Wagering To Continue Statewide

The Nebraska State Racing Commission reversed an earlier decision and approved agreements that will allow simulcast wagering at the state’s four racetracks to continue.

According to a report in the Lincoln Journal Star, the decision was announced by Commission Director Tom Sage in a press release early Monday.

The Omaha Exposition and Racing Inc., the simulcast provider for the state, had filed a lawsuit last week appealing the racing commission’s earlier decision to cease simulcasting operations as of Jan. 1.

The Journal Star reported that it was believed that a contract dispute between the state’s horsemen and Fonner Park appeared to be the reason for the racing commission’s earlier decision to cease simulcasting in the state. Fonner Park conducts the longest live meet in Nebraska each year.
