Massachusetts dog track betting not gone--yet
BOSTON, Massachusetts: The House approved a bill on November 10, 2009 that extends simulcasting at the state’s two dog racing tracks until July 31, 2010. The Wonderland Greyhound Park had stopped racing after Massachusetts voters approved a ballot question in 2008 to ban such events. The park is to cease racing on December 31, 2009, and the state's other dog park, The Raynham Park, is supposed to stop races the next day.
If the Senate approves of the bill, both parks would be converted into off-track betting venues for the first half of the 2010. Only bets on races elsewhere in the country would take place at the parks.
