BLACKOUT OF MONARCH TRACKS
STATEMENT REGARDING THE MID-ATLANTIC COOPERATIVE’S BLACKOUT OF MONARCH TRACKS
ARCADIA, CA - To those customers unable to wager on Monarch product this weekend at Mid-Atlantic simulcast locations:
Monarch and its member racetracks very much regret that customers are currently not able to watch and wager on Monarch tracks at simulcast locations that are part of the Mid-Atlantic Cooperative. The Mid-Atlantic Cooperative is a group of 23 racetracks that purchase simulcast content together. Monarch has done everything possible to try to ensure that signals remain on during our negotiations with the Mid-Atlantic Cooperative. In fact, Monarch has offered several times to extend the current terms of our simulcast agreement with the Mid-Atlantic tracks while negotiations continue in order that customers not be inconvenienced. However, the Mid-Atlantic Cooperative has refused to accept any extension, and has voluntarily ceased taking Monarch signals.

David Jacobson, winning trainer of Salutos Amigos (No. 1): "I wasn't concerned at all with the wet track, because he was 3-for-3 in the mud.
