BISMARCK, North Dakota -- A Fargo company wants the state Racing Commission's blessing for a plan to funnel wagering on horse races to North Dakota through a Caribbean computer hub, but regulators say they're unsure if the proposal is legal.

Lien Games, which supplies video signals of horse races to North Dakota off-track betting sites, is pushing for the offshore gambling operation.
