    Suffolk Downs racing track.

    The Scarborough Downs harness racing track in Maine has been sued by the Suffolk Downs horse track in Massachusetts for allegedly failing to pay nearly $180,000 in simulcast bets placed at the Maine track.

    The Portland Press Herald reports
    that Suffolk Downs filed the breach of contract lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Portland on Monday.

    Scarborough Downs entered a contract with Suffolk Downs in 2012 so bettors at the tracks could make wagers on races remotely.

    The lawsuit says the agreement specified how the tracks would share profits from customers who lost their wagers.

    Suffolk Downs closed last year, but continues to function as a broker, managing simulcast payments for other tracks.

    An attorney for Scarborough Downs says the Maine track owes Suffolk Downs some money, but disputes the amount.
