Kentucky High Court To Hear Instant Racing Case

FRANKFORT (AP) - The Kentucky Supreme Court will take up the issue of instant racing at horse race tracks.

The justices on Friday voted to hear an appeal brought by Gov. Steve Beshear's administration and Kentucky horse race tracks. Beshear and the tracks want the court to reverse a decision by the Kentucky Court of Appeals that sent the case back to Franklin Circuit Court for further deliberation and proceedings.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that six justices voted to take the case. Justice Wil Schroeder did not hear the request for review.

The case involves instant racing games at Kentucky Downs in Franklin and Ellis Park in Henderson. The games allow players to bet on previously run races. The Family Foundation challenged the legality of the games.
