The Kentucky Chamber released the results of a statewide study commissioned by a partnership of Kentucky horse industry interests to study the impact of expanded gaming. The study, conducted by an independent research firm, shows that adding casino-style gaming at eight Kentucky racetrack locations would produce $1.7 billion dollars of economic impact during the first full year of casino operations, resulting in a net gain of approximately 11,000 full-time jobs, paying $290 million in wages annually. The Chamber has long advocated gaming as a means to help our signature horse industry and to help stop the flow of Kentucky dollars to other states. Click here for details of the report.
