Racing's right to offer account wagering under the amended 1978 Interstate Horseracing Act was reaffirmed in Internet gaming legislation passed early Saturday morning by the U.S. House and Senate.
Interstate simulcasting and telephone and Internet wagering on horse races will come under attack again if U.S. Rep. Chris Cannon, a Republican from Utah, introduces an amendment that would remove horse racing provisions from an Internet gambling bill sponsored by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, a Republican from Virginia.
