Hollywood Park Wagering Comes to Fairplex Park

April 24, 1998

Satellite wagering on Hollywood Park's thoroughbred races will be offered at Fairplex Park to coincide with the opening of Hollywood Park's 59th season tonight. In addition, satellite wagering on quarter horses from Los Alamitos returns tonight.

There had been some question if the thoroughbred wagering would be allowed at Fairplex Park after Santa Anita, citing an effect on on-track attendance, would not send its satellite signal to Fairplex Park last December. Santa Anita estimated it would lose 200 to 400 patrons daily when Fairplex carries the races.

Fairplex Park also announced it would offer simulcast wagering from Del Mar in July.
