PETA-Proposed Technology Will Spare Horses Used for Racing.

A first-of-its-kind technology for horse racing wagering terminals, conceived of and proposed by PETA to raise funds to care for Thoroughbreds retired from racing, has been developed by AmTote. The concept, presented by PETA to The Stronach Group and the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA), involves a pop-up screen for wagering terminals asking bettors to donate a portion of their winnings to the TAA. The TAA announced the technology Sunday at the annual Jockey Club Round TableConference on Matters Pertaining to Racing. This is the first time such an interface has been developed for the racing industry.
