Hollywood Park, Golden Gate Wagering Now Available Outside California

The Hollywood Park and Golden Gate Fields signals are once again available to out-of-state ADW (advance deposit wagering) customers. The Thoroughbred Owners of California (TOC) this morning announced that agreement has been reached with Xpressbet, Twin Spires, Youbet, and TVG on the current ADW impasse. The accord permits those ADW providers to begin accepting interstate ADW wagers today, and resolves related issues for all California Thoroughbred race meets for next year. The settlement agreement was reached as a direct result of the efforts of the Thoroughbred Horsemen's Group (THG), of which TOC is a founding member.

The news comes just in time for bettors around the nation to take part in a massive $251,713 pick-six carryover at Hollywood tonight and a $49,645 carryover at Golden Gate Fields.

First post at Hollywood Park is 7:05 p.m. PST, and first post at Golden Gate Fields is 1:45 p.m. PST.

Another farce perpetrated by the TOC, Magna, TVG and the CHRB. This is not a victory. Its another in a long line of failures. Without a merger of TVG and HRTV, this alleged "agreement" does absolutely nothing to promote Cali racing. For those of us with DirecTV, we are constrained by TVG's monopoly. For us, HRTV is an apparition.

Why is it that NYRA can permit television coverage by both networks, yet the CHRB allows each of these two parasites to maintain "exclusive" control over certain Cali tracks? The silence is deafening!

Maybe I'm missing something here...but if you want HRTV and TVG, why don't you just get DISH network instead of DirecTV?
That's what I did.
