That's the date tentatively scheduled to open the sports book at Monmouth Park following Monday's Supreme Court ruling that lifted a federal ban on sports gambling. Monmouth Park's new sports book would be the state's first and could be open for business as early as May 28.
"It's my intention, unless somebody stops us, to be up and running in two weeks," Monmouth Park operator Dennis Drazin said. "If the Legislature or the governor says 'slow down,' I'm gonna listen to them."
Indeed, before any bets can be taken, New Jersey lawmakers have to approve legislation that will govern legalized sports betting.
