Churchill: No Instant Racing for now

by | 07.28.2011 | 12:35pm

While two other Kentucky tracks have decided to pursue Instant Racing, Churchill Downs is taking a wait-and-see approach. 

During a conference call Thursday on second-quarter earnings, Churchill Downs Inc. CEO Bob Evans said the company has no plans to install Instant Racing this year.  Evans said his company is concerned whether Instant Racing would have much appeal with casino gaming nearby in Indiana.

Ellis Park and Kentucky Downs are both moving forward with installation of Instant Racing, despite a pending legal challenge to its legality.
