A judge in Frankfort is set to take up when to set a trial over the issue of Instant Racing at racetracks.

A hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Monday in Franklin Circuit Court after Kentucky officials requested a hearing to move the case toward a resolution.

 

Instant Racing is another step closer to leaving the gate at Kentucky horse tracks. But opponents of the new form of gambling still hope to block it.  Instant Racing, which involves electronic gambling on previously-run horse races, has never won legislative approval in Kentucky. But last month, a legislative oversight panel refused to block regulations allowing it.
