Off to the races: Horse racing’s role in US gaming expansion

Is the US sitting on a goldmine? With a bill to regulate fixed odds betting on horse racing making its way through the New Jersey legislature, could this lead to similar developments in other states?


This webinar, sponsored by BetMakers Technology Group, aims to provide the ICE 365 audience with an understanding on the role of horse racing in the US gaming ecosystem.

It brings together executives from Monmouth Park in New Jersey; Chicago's Hawthorne Racecourse and California-based operator WatchandWager to discuss the following points:

  • The state of play for racing in the USA 
  • The opportunity ahead
  • A harmonious relationship with sports betting
  • Building a product for racing fans
  • The fixed odds opportunity
  • Closing the generational gap
