New York horse racing industry is in favour of online betting
Horse racing experts asked the New York Racing and Wagering Board to introduce a law which would allow people to bet online.
New York is one of the few states that restrict account wagering to the telephone, but industry surveys show a majority of customers who would rather bet online.
New York off-track betting operators are struggling to compete with out-of-state operators, and online betting is a way to increase revenues and give the horse racing industry a future.
