    Chapter 5: New Jersey Racing Commission, powers, duties; definitons.

      Section: 5:5-125: Race track may receive simulcast transmissions from out-of-State track; interstate common pools, formation.

          
37. a. (1) Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, the New Jersey Racing Commission, upon application by a receiving track, as defined in section 2 of P.L.1985, c.269 (C.5:5-111), and in accordance with applicable federal law, may permit the track to receive, in addition to the horse races authorized by section 10 of P.L.1985, c.269 (C.5:5-119), simulcast transmissions of the racing program, in full or in part, from any out-of-State sending track, as defined in section 2 of P.L.1985, c.269 (C.5:5-111), during any time period, provided that the receiving track agrees to receive all simulcast horse races which any in-State sending track wishes to transmit to it during that same time period, and provided further that, except as provided in subsection b. of this section, the parimutuel pools at the receiving track shall be combined with comparable parimutuel pools at the out-of-State sending track. No limit shall be placed on the number of racing programs the track may receive from out-of-State sending tracks except as otherwise provided herein.

(2) Whenever an out-of-State sending track participates in simulcasting pursuant to paragraph (1) of this subsection and the parimutuel pools are combined at the out-of-State sending track, the types of wagering, takeout, distribution of winnings, rules of racing, method of calculating breakage, and the percentage of deposits remaining undistributed from a parimutuel pool after payment is made to winning ticket holders shall be determined in accordance with the law or policy applicable to the out-of-State sending track. However, moneys resulting from breakage on amounts wagered at the receiving track and from outstanding parimutuel tickets issued at the receiving track in all instances shall be distributed as provided by section 38 of this act.

b. With the prior approval of the New Jersey Racing Commission and the concurrence of the out-of-State sending track, a receiving track and receiving tracks or entities in other states other than the state in which the sending track is located may form an interstate common pool, as defined in section 2 of P.L.1985, c.269 (C.5:5-111). With respect to such interstate common pools, the Racing Commission may approve types of wagering, takeout, distribution of winnings, rules of racing, method of calculating breakage, and a percentage of deposits remaining undistributed from a parimutuel pool after payment is made to winning ticket holders which are different from those which would otherwise be applied in this State but which are consistent for all parties to the interstate common pool. However, moneys resulting from breakage on amounts wagered at the receiving track and from outstanding parimutuel tickets issued at the receiving track in all instances shall be distributed as provided in section 38 of this act.

c. (Deleted by amendment, P.L.2001, c.199).

L.1992,c.19,s.37; amended 2001, c.199, s.37.
