Atlantic City Race Course, which opened April 23 for six days of all-turf racing, will not send out the simulcast signal of its live meet due to a disagreement with the New Jersey Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association.
Officials at Atlantic City Race Course said April 2 there are no plans to close the storied New Jersey track, which will continue to offer live Thoroughbred racing and longer meets if it receives a share of a $90-million purse supplement from the state's casinos.
