Historical horse racing terminals shut down at Keeneland and Red Mile

26 January 2021

Over the weekend, Keeneland and Red Mile Gaming & Racing temporarily closed their historical horse racing operations. This decision comes after the Kentucky Supreme Court unanimously deemed the historical horse racing devices as not "pari-mutuel" and ruling them as unlawful.

In mid-October, a petition was put forth for a hearing on the Supreme Court's ruling but that was denied.

Below is a statement from Keeneland and Red Mile Gaming & Racing:

“We were disappointed the Kentucky Supreme Court denied our petition for rehearing. At this time, Keeneland and Red Mile have made the very difficult decision to temporarily close historical horse racing operations until there is more clarity surrounding the situation. We have confidence the Kentucky legislature will continue its efforts to protect jobs and state revenue generated by historical horse racing, as well as protect Kentucky’s signature horse racing industry.”
