The Horse Racing Fantasy Sports Wagering Exception Under the UIGEAAugust 14, 2013 – Articles
Gaming Law Review and Economics
Unlike the sports that form the basis of traditional fantasy sports, such as baseball or football, horse racing is heavily regulated at the state level, by 38 individual state racing commissions. Only one federal law specifically addresses horse racing, and that is the civil act titled the Interstate Horseracing Act, which, as amended, allows the transmission of pari-mutuel wagering on horse racing across state lines.
