Date of Proposal:
September 8, 2005

Proposal Number:
PRN 2005-361

Proposal Description:
The proposed rule would authorize a new type of wagering on harness racing known as the “Group Bet.” The Group Bet places a field of horses into three different categories. One horse is designated the “non-group horse” and the remaining horses are divided into two groups. The Group Bet is essentially a form of “win bet” on every horse in a chosen group. Having wagered on a specific group – and assuming one horse in that group wins the race -- a bettor need not be concerned with which specific horse won, because the payout will be the same. If the non- group horse wins, or any horse in the group the bettor did not select wins, the bettor loses. The proposed rule appears in October 3, 2005 edition of the New Jersey Register.

Summary of Proposal:
A summary of the proposed rule is posted on the New Jersey Racing Commission Web site at:
