Simulcasting of Thoroughbred racing at Rockingham Park should be back to 2002 levels by Friday.
In early January, the New England HBPA blocked Suffolk Downs from sending it signal to Rockingham. To show support, horsemen's groups representing Gulfstream Park, Turfway Park, Fair Grounds, Delta Downs, Sam Houston Park, and Oaklawn Park had shut off their simulcast signals to Rockingham Park.Ed Callahan, vice president and general manager of Rockingham Park, said the track will be simulcasting live races from Suffolk Downs on Wednesday, and the races from Gulfstream Park could be returned on Wednesday but will definitely be simulcast Thursday.Seabrook Yankee Greyhound Park, which also lost Thoroughbred simulcast signals, reached a temporary agreement and will be offering full simulcasting again as well.In December, Rockingham Park announced the track would switch from live Thoroughbred to harness racing in 2003.
