Scientific Games Racing has not determined the cause of a system glitch that caused its "stop betting" order on the Los Angeles Handicap (gr. III) at Hollywood Park May 16 to go unheeded at 33 off-track wagering locations, a company representative told the California Horse Racing Board.
Relevant players speak out on California "quick-picks" wagering situation.
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.
Richard "Bon" Smith, a certified financial manager who served as chief of audits with the California Department of Motor Vehicles, has been named assistant executive director of the California Horse Racing Board.
