In a short statement issued Jan. 1, New York Racing Association chief Charlie Hayward said an agreement had not been reached to send the organization’s racing signal to TVG.
"We are disappointed to announce that NYRA has been unable to reach a simulcast agreement for 2009 with TVG at this time," Hayward said. "Regrettably, we are unable to send our signal to TVG and their contracted parties TVG-Yonkers and TRNI beginning today. We will continue to work diligently to finalize an agreement and hope to do so in the very near future. We sincerely regret the inconvenience to TVG’s account wagering customers."
