New York state regulators have modified a couple of ways in which wagering on Thoroughbred races is conducted as part of an effort to boost field size and revenues for the industry.
New York Racing Association supports proposals that would decouple entries in stakes races of $50,000 or more, and add superfecta wagering to the betting menu of races with coupled entries.
The California Horse Racing Board voted Monday to temporarily waive rules requiring the coupling of horses specifically for the two current Thoroughbred meetings at Bay Meadows and Hollywood Park on condition there be at least five separate wagering interests prior to any uncoupling.
The California Horse Racing Board is seeking written public response prior to April 10 on its proposal to eliminate the coupling of horses as single-wagering interests due to common ownership.

Coupled entries for wagering due to common ownership should be eliminated, the California Horse Racing Board decided at its meeting Jan. 19 in Arcadia.
