The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission has a scheduled a special meeting to consider newly drafted regulations for sports wagering

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — According to local media reports Kentucky is taking a step toward implementing sports wagering as the state’s Horse Racing Commission has scheduled a special meeting Monday to consider regulations for the newly lawful form of gambling.

Louisville television station WDRB reports that after winning approval in the state legislature earlier this year, sports betting is expected to be available to Kentuckians in the fall, industry participants and observers have said. The racing commission, which is charged with overseeing sports betting, hasn’t responded to multiple requests for an estimated timeline.

The commission is staffing up — adding 14 positions — and has been meeting with counterparts in states like Indiana, New Jersey and Ohio in preparation for sports wagering, the television station reported KHRC chairman Jonathan Rabinowitz said during the commission’s June 20 meeting.
