Off-track betting is suspended at Fonner Park in Grand Island for the indefinite future, according to racetrack management.

An official said the track hasn't been able to come to an agreement with the Horse Benevolent Protective Association, the horsemen group that racetracks negotiate with when it comes to simulcast wagering.

Fonner Park leaders have requested a hearing with the Nebraska State Racing Commission to try and get things sorted out.

Off-track races that are popular to spectators include the Preakness States and the Belmont Stakes.
