Off Track Betting Locations in New Jersey

Off Track Betting Locations in New Jersey

New Jersey has been a bettor's mecca for generations. The state's involvement with horse racing goes way back: as a result, New Jersey is recognized as having one of the most permissive attitudes in America towards gambling. Freehold Raceway is acknowledged as the oldest track in the United States, having held informal races there since the 1830s and officially opening in 1853, while Monmouth Park premiered to the public in 1870. While all games of chance including pari-mutuel betting were technically outlawed from 1894 to 1939, enforcement was very lax and Freehold continued to operate without any official closures.

Today, the boardwalk in Atlantic City is the nerve center for various games of chance, with more than a dozen casinos. The Garden State has three racetracks: Freehold, Monmouth and the Meadowlands, which opened in 1976. The three tracks scheduled 271 live racing dates in 2016, and all three hold simulcasts (along with several casinos): more than 60,000 races per year are shown on screens at the various venues.
