LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- The Kentucky Horse Racing Commission gave its okay Wednesday, for the southern Kentucky track and simulcast facility to install another 75 "instant racing" machines, which resemble casino-style slot machines.
The track in Franklin near the Tennessee border, debuted the game in September with 200 machines, and total wagering on the old horse races surpassed $40-million through the end of January.
The track kept nearly $2.9 million, part of which will go to boost purses for its short live-racing season in September. The state collected $603,730.
A lawsuit by the Family Foundation to ban the games is still pending in the Kentucky Court of Appeals.
