'Il Palio' horse-racing on the beach postponed

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTIC CITY - Those looking forward to seeing horse racing on Atlantic City's beach will have to wait a while longer.

Sunday a spokesperson for the Atlantic City Alliance confirmed that the "American Palio," based on the traditional Italian race, "Il Palio," will not happen next weekend as planned, but will be postponed until 2014.

It seems that race organizers came up against a time-crunch in planning the event -- Governor Christie signed the bill allowing the race into law September 18th, less than a month before the races were scheduled to be held.

No date has been set for the 2014 race.
