Simulcast Racing

Wagering on live horse and dog races.

A simulcast is a broadcast of horse and/or greyhound races in real time to distant locations, enabling bettors who are far from the racetrack to wager on the contests. There is currently only one location in New Hampshire where players can wager on simulcast races. Although live horse racing is permitted in New Hampshire, there are currently no live races offered in the state.

If you are looking for information on “live” horse racing, please contact the NHLC-Investigation & Compliance Division at (603) 271-7613.
