A Kentucky judge has ruled that the manner in which a race result is depicted on historical racing machines to determine if a player has won or lost is not a factor in whether the electronic form of gaming is legal.
Attorneys for two sides in the convoluted court battle over historical race wagering in Kentucky were in court again July 25, arguing whether the type machines in use at Kentucky Downs are in compliance with state regulations.
Proponents and opponents of historical race wagering expressed optimism that their respective sides will prevail following a lengthy hearing before the Kentucky Supreme Court Aug. 21.
The Kentucky Court of Appeals is expected to issue an opinion on the challenge to Instant Racing machines in four to six weeks, one of three judges said April 25 after hearing oral arguments on the issue.
A public hearing designed to gauge public opinion about a proposal to permit "Instant Racing" type wagering in Kentucky became a faceoff between representatives of the state's horse industry and the Family Foundation.
The public gets another opportunity to comment on new Kentucky Horse Racing Commission regulations that would allow Instant Racing machines at the racetracks.
