Alfred Miller Louisville Courier Journal Published 11:37 AM EDT Sep 18, 2018 As lawmakers weigh allowing sports gambling in Kentucky, Churchill Downs has laid the groundwork to be first out of the gate if betting is approved. The racetrack owner debuted $65 million Derby City Gaming in Louisville on Friday. At its center, the 85,000-square-foot facility has a 50-seat sports bar featuring stacks of television screens. Around it are 900 “instant racing” machines — devices similar to slot machines but reliant on the results of past races. And more could be coming soon. Earlier this month, Churchill Downs, together with Lexington’s Keeneland racetrack, applied to the state's horse racing commission to operate a $125 million facility near Hopkinsville. The facility would open in 2020 and house 1,500 more instant racing machines and a 125-room hotel.

In the month since the Supreme Court legalized sports betting, state politicians are working to pass regulatory legislation to tax an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars each year. New York, home of Syracuse University, likely won't get another crack at passing comprehensive legislation until 2019. Even then, any law is only the first look at sports betting in America.
