FILE – In this Aug. 31, 2011, file photo, Bobby Geiger of Oaklawn Racing and Gaming explains how wagers are placed on a "Yukon Willie's Gold Rush!" game in the instant racing area at Kentucky Downs in Franklin, Ky. The result of each wager on the game is tied to a past horse race. With New Jersey's horse racing industry struggling, a state Assembly committee held a hearing Thursday, June 1, 2017, on a proposal to legalize gambling on races that already happened, known as historical racing. The date and place of the races, and the names of horses and jockeys, remain secret until money is wagered and the recording of the race begins to play. (AP Photo/Ed Reinke, File)
