Cell phones may soon be used to bet on horse races

bel_rags_curlin.jpg According to Newsday, you may soon be able to use your cell phone to bet on a horse race.

"The New York Racing Association (NYRA) has agreed to use a new software application, mWager, if approved by the state Racing and Wagering Board.

MWager would provide real-time information on races at Aqueduct, Belmont Park and Saratoga tracks.

... Users would register with NYRA's Internet-based wagering system, and then be e-mailed or text-messaged a link to download mWager from the software company,
Sona Mobile

Users will have access to information on the horse, owner and trainer, as well as odds, scratches and race results. Bettors could place all wagers, including win, place, show and exotic, without calling a betting line or going to a terminal."
