Sports gambling bill again filed in Kentucky Frank Angst, BloodHorse · January 12, 2021 at 11:00 pm Kentucky legislators again will have the opportunity to consider sports wagering legislation this year after Rep. Adam Koenig, an Erlanger Republican, introduced a bill Jan. 9. House Bill 241 is similar to legislation Koenig sponsored last year. It would allow sports wagering at Kentucky tracks and betting would be regulated by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission. The state’s racetracks would be eligible to receive licenses to host sports wagering, as well as professional sports venues with seating for 50,000 or more people. (Currently, Kentucky Speedway would qualify in that category.) The bill also would allow applications for online sports wagering and it outlines rules for online poker and daily fantasy games.
