Past-post report advances


The New Hampshire Racing Commission has forwarded the results of its investigation into past-post betting by a Rockingham Park employee to the state attorney general, who could decide to press criminal charges against the mutuel teller involved.

The teller, who no longer works at Rockingham, allegedly made bets worth thousands of dollars in winnings on the 10th race from Belmont Park on Sept. 20 after the race was over. A computer malfunction in the totalizator network run by Scientific Games Racing had failed to stop betting on the Belmont Race at two dozen sites in the United States, including Rockingham.

It is unclear what criminal charges the teller might face. The attorney general's office in New Hampshire did not return phone calls on Monday.
