New Jersey residents have been concerned about the possibility of horse race betting occurring on the beaches of Atlantic City but the approval of bill A4149 by Governor Chris Christie has eased fears. The bill allows Palio, a 700-year-old Italian horse race celebrated every year Siena to this day. Palio is when horses race around the town square and comes with more fanfare that your everyday horse race.
Punters can place bets on the annual Far Hills Race Meeting as well, a race that supports Somerset Medical Center's cancer center.
The new race, known as the American Palio Celebration, will take place on the beach over a three-quarter mile area. The first race kicks off on October 11th-13th and wagers will be accepted. There will be 50 horses that will go through a process of elimination leaving just 10 for the main race.
Law makers hope that this will draw more visitors to Atlantic City and aid in increasing betting revenues. Atlantic City officials guarantee a family oriented beach atmosphere.
