Churchill Downs Incorporated has completed the sale of 49% in the United Tote division to New York Racing Association.

NYRA Content Management Solutions (a NYRA subsidiary) will acquire the stake in the deal agreed on August 20, 2022. CDI did not disclose the financial terms of United Tote’s sale.

United Tote is a supplier of totalisators, equipment and services. The company also offers a variety of services in technology to handle bets, payouts, and tote pari-mutuel services.

In the original agreement, CDI and NYRA would provide pari-mutuel solutions through United Tote in order to reach their customers. The United Tote business of pari-mutuel betting settlements was excluded from the deal and would remain at CDI.

NYRA, a non-profit organization, operates three of the largest thoroughbred racing tracks in New York. Aqueduct Racetrack is located in South Ozone Park (Queens), Belmont Park at Elmont, and Saratoga Race Course near Saratoga Springs.
