Three members of the California Horse Racing Board were in conflict of interest when they voted against a request by harness interests for additional racing rights at Los Alamitos Race Course, a Sacramento Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday. In ruling on a suit against the racing board, Judge Allen Fields said that CHRB chairman Leslie Liscom, Ray Seeley and Rosemary Ferraro should have disqualified themselves from voting because of connections with Hollywood Park, which owns Los Alamitos.
