One Step Closer to Sports Gambling
On this Valentine’s Day, I would love to place a legal wager at a Kentucky sports book. You can’t do it this year, but it could be on its way. Yesterday the Kentucky state legislature discussed a bill that would allow you to place legal wagers at horse tracks and the Kentucky Speedway. The only stipulation: if this bill passes, you will not be able to bet on games involving Kentucky universities. You’ll find more details on HB175 here.
