In less than 60 days, Kentuckians will be able to make their first-ever sports bets in Kentucky.
Retail locations are set to open Thursday, September 7 and mobile applications launch Thursday, September 28.
The announcement came after a Kentucky Horse Racing Commission meeting, where members unanimously approved emergency administrative regulations that will govern sports wagering.
Gov. Beshear immediately signed the regulations at the Red Mile.
Starting Tuesday, July 11, each of Kentucky’s licensed horse racing facilities can apply for a retail sportsbook at their main location or at a licensed satellite location. The state anticipates that each facility will open a retail location.

Each licensed facility will also be permitted to partner with up to three marketing platforms for mobile wagering, which launches September 28.
