Lone Star now an Xpressbet track


GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas - XpressBet, a national account wagering system operated by Magna Entertainment, began accepting bets on Lone Star Park races Friday. Lone Star is the latest track to be purchased by Magna in a deal that closed

Oct. 23.

Television Games Network has been taking account wagers on Lone Star races since the network was launched in 1999, but when the track's current Quarter Horse meet ends on Nov. 30, TVG will no longer be allowed to accept bets on Lone Star races.

Thoroughbred racing returns to Lone Star in April.
