Monmouth Park Racetrack Company Contests P.A.S.P.A.

New Jersey's progress towards challenging the federal act

A racetrack company Monmouth Park supported New Jersey's progress towards challenging the federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act after that US state allowed intrastate sports betting from Atlantic City casinos and state racetracks.

A New Jersey operator is ready to step forward and front the challenge, inevitably leading to the litigation against the federal government in case of the lack of political resolution. This is the problem to be borne in mind by the state legislators and the administration supporting the sports betting initiative.

Dennis Drazin, an executive of the firm Monmouth Park, gave a rather combative statement to New Jersey website saying:

'We're the only ones who appear willing to go forward right now. Everyone else wants to wait and see how it plays out. I'm not convinced that the NFL or the federal government will try and stop me, but we also have to anticipate that there may be an attempt for an injunction.'

"If there is, though, my way of combating that would be to go right back at the NFL. It seems like they're always talking about betting lines on football shows on TV, so the NFL is hypocritical about opposing legal sports betting here,' he concluded.
