Kentucky horse bets online

Associated Press-

Frankfort, Ky.(AP)- The Kentucky Senate has passed legislation calling for state licensing of companies that allow people to place phone or online bets on horse races in the state.

The measure cleared the Senate on a 36-0 vote Thursday.

It heads back to the house, which will consider senate changes.

The bill would require that advance deposit wagering operators be licensed by the Kentucky horse racing commission.

Another key section would require ADW providers to submit quarterly reports on all wagers made on Kentucky races.
