The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission will not hear a request by Kentucky Downs to offer its races on New Jersey's betting exchange, Betfair US, at its upcoming meeting next week at the request of Kentucky Downs .

According to the Daily Racing Form, the request had been removed from the agenda by the commission's chairman, Frank Kling, who is also a member of the Wagering Integrity Committee.

Marc Guilfoil, the commission's executive director, said, “We're still investigating certain questions that haven't been answered.”

Corey Johnsen, the president of Kentucky Downs, expressed disappointment, but understood the commission's need for more time.

“We're still supportive of the exchange-wagering concept and we believe that it's an innovation that has great potential,” Johnsen said. “When the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission is ready for it, we will be ready to offer it.”
