Racing fans were dismayed – and shocked – when races for tonight (May 27, Tuesday) at the San Lazaro Leisure Park were suddenly cancelled after the barrier trials. Manila Jockey Club (MJC) management said only that there were “technical problems with the server”.
Other sources allege that the betting matrix from the pari-mutuel totalizator service provider was not fed to the MJC servers, prohibiting wagering.
People in the know say that problems between MJC and the totalizator service providers – local and foreign – have been festering for months. These issues stem, they claim, from disputes on contractual obligations.
However, pending confirmation of information received, a more detailed report cannot be posted. Keep checking this blog for an update.
