Here is Governor Steve Beshear’s weekly address ‘About Kentucky’. 

 

The topic this week is the Horse Racing Commission’s decision to allow “historic” or “instant” racing in Kentucky.

 

The proposal to allow instant racing stalled in the General Assembly earlier this year.

 

The game allows people to bet on old races without the names of the horses, jockeys, and trainers.

 

Governor Beshear says it is badly needed.

 

 

There's no timetable on when the proposed regulation could go into effect and the commission expects a challenge from anti-gambling groups.

Do you agree with the decision?  Let me know your thoughts.
