It's now illegal to accept online horse bets from Texas.

http://www.chron.com/default/article...ys-2238433.php

Excerpt;

The Texas Racing Commission has begun informing out-of-state wagering companies that it's now illegal to accept online horse or greyhound bets from Texas.

In effect since Sept. 1, HB 2271 also outlaws phone wagers from this state.
On Oct. 14, TRC executive director Chuck Trout wrote nine out-of-state wagering companies about the legislation. Texas Attorney General staff consulted with the TRC on the letter's contents.

More people without a clue:

"ADW accounts siphon revenue from Texas tracks and Texas governance. A Texan wagering from home on a New York race through a Kentucky ADW account excludes Texas from the transaction. This state gets a revenue slice only if that race occurs at a Texas track."

Do they actually think people will just start going to the track again? Please.

If Lone Star and Sam Houston aren't behind this, who is? I doubt the Texas politicians came up with this all by themselves.

I live in Texas.
PTC is still taking bets.
If PTC stops taking bets, I'll be done with horse racing.

Is this analogous to not being able to tax Amazon.com shopping vs Local retailers ?

Hey I'm a politician.....Look at me, I'm important and I'll prove it by jamming some useless crap legislation down your throat. But you are after all an ignorant lazy citizen that swallows all the crap I say.


That is what sits bouncing around in most politician's heads. I'm sick of them all. Our country is in the mess it is, because of POLITICIANS..... And they don't even get it.

Handi hate em all!

Maybe Perry is? He's pouting over his appeal outside the Lone Star state.

I realize that this is a very unpopular opinion but:

I'm convinced the reason for the sorry state of the sport is because there is OTB.

If folks don't start going to the track again horse racing is done.

This is exactly how the spiral started-by allowing patrons to wager outside the track instead of attending. Revenue to the track shrinks now as result of everybody else with a slice of their own out of every dollar wagered. Killed harness.....(well that was part of the story....)

Everything changes.

Things evolve.

You cannot get the manure back into the horse.

this is the texas shakedown. and why it has happened is because the racing game is very stupid. racing needed to regulate itself, instead of having the states stick their noses in. states want NFL franchises in their cities, because it brings plenty of revenue for them to spend and help keeps their economy going. racing is very limited these days in creating a positive outlook for anything.

Well, as a Texas resident, and an ADW wagerer, this is probably the end of racing for me.

This is absolutely the stupidest thing that the state could have done. Now, Texas tracks will receive less revenue than before. Texans quit betting Texas tracks back when GW pushed the law through that banned residents from wagering on Texas tracks via the internet. Now they'e taken the next step, making it illegal to wager on any tracks via the internet. We're talking millions of dollars for all US tracks.

HANA, where are you?

Do they think anything positive will come from this?

Absolutely ridiculous!

Furthermore nothing could even get done here with the House leader approving it.

At least to me both sides are buffoons the blame doesn't lie with one party. It gets attached to everyone who voted for it and the Governor who signed it.
