For first time, gamblers bet on sports at Meadowlands Racetrack
"Saturday ... the track featured the biggest harness race of the year, the Meadowlands Pace, and a new attraction: sports betting. So the vast parking lots surrounding the track were nearly full. By the end of the night, not only did [Gural's] horse, Six Pack, win the sixth race, but gamblers had put down a total of $560,000 in bets, more in a single day than at New Jersey’s other newly opened sports betting parlors. By Sunday noon, the Meadowlands sports book had taken in another $220,000."

Will D.C. legalize sports gambling? ‘Everything is on the table,’ one lawmaker says
"Sports betting has been against the law in the District since very early in the 20th century, when the city’s congressional overlords enacted Washington’s criminal code and made it illegal 'to bet, gamble, or make books or pools on the result of any trotting race or running race of horses, or boat race, or race of any kind, or on any election or any contest of any kind, or game of base ball.' The current D.C. law retains much of the same language but expands the list of sports to include just about everything ... the law means you can’t even place a legal online bet on a horse race in the District, a practice that is allowed in 38 states, including neighboring Virginia and Maryland. Asked about that particular angle, Evans said that 'everything is on the table.'"
