Sentencing for the three former Drexel University fraternity brothers convicted in the Breeders' Cup pick six scandal has again be rescheduled. Chris Harn, Glen DaSilva, and Derrick Davis will be sentenced by Judge Charles I. Brieant in White Plains, New York on March 20 at 9 a.m.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's office said Friday the sentencing date was changed from March 11 at the request of both the prosecution and defense teams.
Harn entered his guilty plea Nov. 20 for helping to fraudulently cash hundreds of thousands of winning tickets through his knowledge of the Autotote system. Davis, who owned the original winning Breeders' Cup pick six tickets worth over $3-million, pled guilty Dec. 12. DaSilva pled guilty a day earlier after saying he had no direct knowledge of the Breeders' Cup bet but had made $180,000 from two previous schemes.
The parimutuel pool for the Breeders' Cup pick six remains frozen by federal officials in an interest-bearing account. Despite efforts from officials for Arlington Park and parent company Churchill Downs Inc., the pool is not likely to be dispersed until after sentencing, officials said.
