An organization called Ohio Telephone Account Betting Ltd. says it plans to launch an online wagering service called Winticket.com on Aug. 28.

The company is owned by four Ohio tracks --Scioto Downs, Thistledown, River Downs and Beulah Park -- and has been in existence for five years or so. Its new general manager, Todd Bowker, formerly with the NTRA, says Winticket.com will allow betting on thoroughbred and harness racing in the U.S. and around the world, and "will provide an efficient and safe alternative" to its telephone wagering system.
