Judge Upholds Betting On Previous Races At KY Horse Tracks

Franklin County Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate issued a ruling Wednesday upholding regulations that allow betting on previously run races at Kentucky horse tracks.  In an effort to boost the struggling industry in the self-proclaimed horse capital of the world, the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission approved the regulations in July. Horse tracks and racing regulators sought the ruling on the legality of the regulations. The Kentucky Family Foundation, an anti-gambling group, intervened in the lawsuit, arguing against the proposal. The ruling is expected to be appealed, so it could be some time before Kentuckians can begin wagering on race replays.
