Kew Gardens, NY --- Due to an impasse in the negotiations between the Monticello Harness Horsemen's Association and the Management of Monticello Raceway, the horsemen's consent for interstate simulcasting of live racing from Monticello has expired.

Pursuant to the Federal Interstate Horseracing Act of 1978, the consent of the recognized horsemen's association at the host track is necessary for a racetrack to conduct interstate simulcasting. Accordingly, Federal law dictates that interstate export of the live Monticello signal immediately cease until further notice.
