HARRISBURG – A Pennsylvania racetrack employee has acknowledged reporting false workout times for horses in exchange for cash.

Sixty-three-year-old Danny Robertson pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday in Harrisburg to wire fraud.

Prosecutors say Robertson gave inaccurate or fabricated times for horses at Hollywood Casino and Racetrack. A November indictment alleged Robertson provided false numbers to racing officials and data clearinghouse Equibase.

Robertson, of Hershey, faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
