The Daily Racing Form is reporting that the Red Mile and Keeneland have separately applied to the KHRC for licenses to operate Instant Racing machines and the applications will be discussed at the commission’s April 2 meeting.
KHHA representatives are scheduled to meet with the Red Mile Wednesday afternoon (March 19), presumably, to discuss their application process.
Meanwhile, HB 445 was assigned to the Senate Committee on Appropriations and Revenue (Click Here for a list of Committee Members). The committee "discussed" the bill Tuesday morning and the Standardbred Development Fund was not mentioned. The bill has not been scheduled for consideration.
