  1. I've never heard of , not betting on live horse racing. I wonder how, the public, will like this. Not sure yet, if i'll drive 100 miles to see.

  2. I wish I could provide you the opportunity to wages on the horse races. The Gaming Bill was defeated in Topeka 19-20, which would have allowed gambling in the state of KS. Contact your local Senator and Representative to see how they voted. The gaming bill would have provided 5200 jobs and $40 million to the state, instead of raising taxes. Hope to see you at a fun afternoon at the races.
