Group Wants Racetrack License for Quarterhorse Facility

LONDON, Ky. (AP) - A lawyer for a group that wants to put a quarter-horse facility in south-central Kentucky says the group is trying to get Kentucky's last available racetrack license.

Attorney Brent Caldwell told The Courier-Journal that seven partners want to build a track on Kentucky 80 in London at a cost of 15 (m) million to 20 (m) million dollars.

The newspaper says John Jones Junior heads the group. He's the former Walmac International Farm owner. Caldwell won't name the other partners but says they have vast racing experience.

Caldwell says an application will be filed with the Kentucky Horse Racing Authority either later this week or next.
