KY track attorneys go both ways on Instant Racing

I am quoted in a Louisville Courier-Journal story today about attorneys for Kentucky Downs, a horse-racing track, who can't seem to decide whether Instant Racing is legal or not. Or at least the
FRANKLIN, KY. — In a high-profile case before the Kentucky Supreme Court, Kentucky Downs — the state’s first track to offer the Instant Racing game that looks like a slot machine — has argued that it is the same as a bet on a live horse race, and just as legal. 
But a month later, Kentucky Downs argued in a different case in Simpson Circuit Court that Instant Racing is alternative gambling — a phrase used to describe slots and other casino games that are currently illegal in Kentucky.
Maybe it comes down to money. Just speculating here. Read the rest here.
