Downstream Casino Resort has launched a Race Book with off-track simulcast pari-mutuel wagering from nine race tracks across the country.
Located just off the casino floor beside the Legends Sports Bar, the Race Book area seats about 60 people and features 15 wide-screen television monitors, two self-service wagering terminals and a staffed teller’s booth for placing bets. Winning tickets from races at any track pay in cash at Downstream Casino Resort. Food service at the Race Book is provided by the resort’s 24-hour restaurant Buffalo Grille.
The Race Book was off and running on August 6 with the opening race at Delaware Park, followed by the full schedule of races at Monmouth Park, Saratoga, Ellis Park, and five other tracks.
Downstream has entered into an agreement with Remington Park Dissemination Corp. of Oklahoma City to supply its simulcast feeds via satellite and to handle its wagers in coordination with all other tracks. Downstream owns and manages its Race Book. Simulcasts are real-time, remote video broadcasts of races and their accompanying wagering data. Downstream’s Race Book features thoroughbred, quarter horse and harness racing from tracks across the country and overseas.
