Belmont card available at Nassau OTB sites


The Belmont Stakes card on Saturday will be shown at all Nassau OTB branches and the Race Palace, according to a release from Nassau Regional Off-Track Betting Corporation.

A disagreement between the New York Racing Association and Nassau OTB resulted in Belmont Park's video signal being blacked out on Channel 74, the OTB cable channel, on the Long Island Cablevision system. But it is available at the OTB sites.

NYRA claims that Nassau OTB provided live streaming video on its website of Aqueduct races from Jan. 29-April 15 without approval from NYRA, which is a violation of state law. Nassau OTB said in a release that the signal had been "disseminated erroneously" by Scientific Games Racing, the subcontractor responsible for its website.
