New Jersey’s Monmouth Park Racetrack to Begin Taking Sports Bets on Sunday

Within hours after Gambling911.com first broke the news that New Jersey’s Attorney General, John Hoffman, issued a directive no longer enforcing the prohibition of sports betting in that state, one of New Jersey’s largest race tracks announced it intends to start taking sports wagers as early as this Sunday.

Monmouth Park Racetrack legal adviser Dennis Drazin told The Associated Press on Tuesday that, while they may not have everything in place by Sunday, the track most certainly will be taking sports bets within 30 days.  

"I got calls from people who wanted to come to the track last night to bet," he said.

He added that if the book is open Sunday — the main day for heavily bet NFL football games — it would probably be a "very basic operation."

The Attorney General also filed a motion with the US District Court (Judge Shipp) seeking "clarification or modification" of the injunction prohibiting enforcement of the NJ Sports Wagering Law.
