Kentucky has enjoyed the time-honored sport of horse racing since the 1700’s.   The rich history of the sport is a part of the “unbridled spirit” of this proud state, and our vision is to build on that heritage to allow expanded gaming along our border communities.   

The Border Gaming Initiative is our approach to creating gaming facilities that place the operations in our border communities where they are needed the most and where jobs and stability will make a critical impact.  Our state has been sending revenues beyond our borders for too long!   Help us create gaming options that capitalize on our surrounding state populations and bring Kentucky tax dollars back home.
