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.

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.
