US Rosecraft Raceway Sues For US$20 Million

Thursday, 9th July 2009

In the US "the Maryland Jockey Club, the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association and 15 other defendants" have been sued for US20 million, reports bloodhorse.com. The reason behind the litigation is a claim by Rosecraft "that the defendants are interfering with Rosecroft's simulcast agreements with out-of-state tracks." Rosecroft (a former standardbred track) has had no live racing for the past year & relies on simulcast betting for its gaming revenue. Rosecraft's signal for simulcast racing was shut down after "the racing commission voted this spring to shut off Rosecroft's simulcast signals because Cloverleaf refused to pay a $5.9 million annual rights fee to the Maryland Jockey Club."
