HZ has requested the adoption of precautionary measures by the DGOJ against the operators that include but are not restricted to the blocking of their websites saying they are not licenced in Spain but are targeting and marketing Spanish horse races to foreign and local website customers.
HZ appealed to racing fans in the same release asking them to avoid participating or contributing in any way to the claimed illegal activities of the operators saying they do nothing towards supporting the industry.
