Nevada books sign pari-mutuel deal

Apr 26, 2006 11:05 PM

Nevada race books will be able to offer a full slate of betting options for races from Churchill Downs-operated tracks after a deal was struck Tuesday.

   Race books were looking at the grim prospect of having to book their own bets, which would have meant lower odds, less options and limits.

   Instead, the books expect to be back “online” with pari-mutuel betting for Calder, Churchill Downs and Hollywood Park by Thursday, April 27.
