Fans unable to cash winning tickets at Pimlico Race Course due to the electrical problems Saturday have a year to collect their money.
As with all mutuel tickets at Pimlico or Laurel Park, fans can come in and cash them when the tracks are open or at any of the state's off-track betting facilities, said Maryland Jockey Club general counsel Martin Jacobs.
Fans can also mail them via certified mail to the Mutuel Department, Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore, Md., 21215. The track will send a return check.
Jacobs said the number of uncashed tickets doesn't seem any higher than ordinary, despite the problems that shut down many betting windows for most of the day.
