FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission has awarded a license for a new facility with plans to offer quarter horse racing.
State officials said Tuesday that Revolutionary Racing will build in Ashland. They said the project will feature an American quarter horse “sprint racing” track and a historical horse racing facility.
Historical racing machines allow people to bet on randomly generated, past horse races. The games typically show videos of condensed horse races. State officials said Revolutionary Racing obtained the last available racing license in Kentucky.
Gov. Andy Beshear said the project will invest $55 million and create 200 jobs.
