    The Supreme Court just ruled 6-3 to lift the federal ban on sports betting in the U.S. Today is an historic day in American sport.

    Game. Changer. Pun not intended, just no other way to describe this. This is an industry shake up, and will be interesting to watch develop.

    Kentucky will move to ban sports gambling.
    Whatever decision that will allow other states to steal revenue and hamper our state, that's the one that will be made.

    Won't be much of an impact for quite a while IMO.

    Eventually though, I think it probably is going to hurt them quite a bit.

    It will hurt Vegas some. But Vegas provides an experience and atmosphere that you are hard pressed to find anywhere else.

    They could have got a Casino passed in the past if they really wanted one, but for some reason, the horse racing industry is scared to death of Casinos.

    If they were smart they would do that...but I'm not sure they are .

    True. It's probably more likely to be downtown somewhere rather than at the track.

    Does anyone remember when the Kentucky Lottery first came out? One of the first games that were going to be offered was betting on NFL games each week. A line was to be published mid week and then you could make parlay bets on as many teams as you wanted. The Lottery was only going to print the City names and call it Professional Football, no mention of the NFL or Team Names...just Cincinati vs Pittsburg -8 or New York (A) vs Kansas City +3

    The NFL stepped in and either sued the state or threatened to and it was cancelled. The guides on how to place the Football Wagers were already printed and in the stores before it got killed.

    I think the Horse Racing Industry will fight this in Frankfort tooth and nail, unless they get a slice of it.

    This ruling did not make gambling and casinos legal everywhere. The Supreme Court just pushed the laws on gambling down to the state level. It is up to each state to make law on what types of gambling are legal and illegal in their state.

    Where in my post did I say otherwise?
