With an impending deal for Churchill Downs to purchase Presque Isle, it was unsurprising that the Pennsylvania oval became the third track in the state to apply for a sports wagering license. According to, Presque Isle's application was received by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on Dec. 7.

Though the PGCB is scheduled to meet on Dec. 19, it is more likely that Presque Isle's request will be on the agenda for the January 2019 meeting.

Penn National was the first track to offer sports wagering in the state, opening its retail sportsbook on Nov. 17.

The Churchill-Presque Isle deal is expected to close this quarter, according to the report.
