The executive director of the California Horse Racing Board said it was he--and not board chairman Richard Shapiro--who possessed information that tote company Scientific Games had prior knowledge of a computer software glitch that affected "quick-pick" wagers before it was discovered after the running of the Kentucky Derby May 3.
In its ongoing investigation of an apparent software glitch that affected "quick-pick" wagers, the California Horse Racing Board is looking into a charge made by its chairman that the New York-based tote company Scientific Games knew of the problem in February and did not report it to the agency or anyone else.
Scientific Games has been awarded the contract to provide pari-mutuel wagering equipment and services for the California Horse Racing Industry, the company announced Aug. 14.
