Sports betting continues to get a lot of attention in Kentucky. A week after the state legislature’s Interim Joint Committee on Appropriations and Revenue held a hearing on the topic, and less than a month after a “working group” of state lawmakers had its first meeting, Bloodhorse and Breeder’s Cup are teaming up to sponsor a symposium on sports betting at Keeneland Sales Pavilion on Thursday, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader.

The symposium will be the most diverse of the meetings that have been held so far, and will include lobbyists from the horse world and the professional sports leagues, lawmakers, and industry representatives. Among the speakers scheduled are:

  • Greg Means, Alpine Group, National Throroughbred Racing Association lobbyist;
  • Sara Slane, American Gaming Association senior vice president of public affairs;
  • John Hindman, FanDuel/TVG general counsel for Fan Duel;
  • Bill Knaulf, Monmouth Park vice president of business operations;
  • Dan Spillane, NBA senior vice president for league governance and policy;
  • Damon Thayer, Kentucky senate majority floor leader;
  • Victor Bigio, consultant and Sportech sports betting business development;
  • Ed Hannah, Stronach Group (owners of Gulfstream Park and Santa Anita Park) vice president; and
  • Daniel Shapiro, William Hill vice president of strategy and business development.

KY Sports Betting Is a Hot Topic and Multiple Bills Have Been Filed.
