Of course you are correct. I mean in the last 50 years they have been new tracks springing up all across the state. I bet you could name, one? two? three for the big prize.

You are wrong and I won't attempt to sway you. Please buy stock and property in anticipation.

The one proposed at Corbin is a quarter horse track. I can't see Keeneland doing it because that would be like Rupp Arena building an Arena somewhere. Keeneland is owned by the Fayette Urban County Government.

I can put up a website for around 4 bucks per month. In a W/D election one side or the other would never put false information on the "Most Holy Internet" that wasn't true, just to help out an old lambda lambda lambda brother. Totally preposterous.

Manchester is starting construction of a Walmart Super Center, a Best Buy and a new larger airport. Plus a lot of new road construction is going on around the city particularly toward the new lake. The city is presently in the process of annexing three times its current area and population which means several new restaurants will open along with 3 to 5 additional liquor stores.
A huge public recreation facility is being built in the Greenbriar area which will feature a movie theatre, swimming pools, a bowling alley, a 1,500 seat auditorium, basketball and tennis courts and more.
I guess there has to be some seriousness to this since the recreation facility has been drawn and hangs on the wall at City Hall in Manchester, of course nobody believes it will ever be built. The Manchester Wal- Mart has the greatest incidence of theft loss compared to all Wal-Marts in the USA so it seems unlikely they would put more out there for people to steal. Ditto for Best Buy. I would sure love to know where they will annex enough to get 3 or 4 more liquor stores. And finally, how can you build a BIGGER AND BETTER airport when you don't have one now?

When was the last time you even heard of the Red Mile unless it was used as a landmark in directions to a liquor store?

Alcohol creates money for government. Break even at the very best by locals. Money that would have went somewhere else in the community without the added headaches. Like sheep they line up with their party, religion etc. Tradition is the enemy of progress. Funneling their money to Richmond and Lexington. Surely you didn't think the politicians just issued Liquor Licenses. Nobody is that dumb. Big money from other towns gets their portion of the pie. All the locals get is worked up, layed off and used.

The biggest one in Corbin is locally owned. People from Manchester griped that none of theirs were locally owned but no local applied. Besides one is owned in partnership by two Clay County natives. They just don't live there now.

Keeneland agrees to buy harness track for Instant Racing license
By Matt Hegarty

LEXINGTON Keeneland Race Course is seeking to buy a troubled harness track in eastern Kentucky in order to raze the facility and relocate the license to Corbin, Ky., where it will open a casino with hundreds of Instant Racing machines, officials said on Friday.
In papers filed with the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, Keeneland said it has reached an agreement to buy the track, Thunder Ridge in Prestonburg, in partnership with Full House Resorts, a casino company with properties in four states, including Indiana. The purchase is contingent on either the passage of legislation that would formalize the legality of Instant Racing or the resolution of a court challenge pushed by an anti-gambling group, Keeneland officials said. If the situation is resolved, Keeneland would seek to partner with the Red Mile, a harness track in downtown Lexington, on an Instant Racing parlor at that track as well, Keeneland chief executive Bill Thomason said on Friday.
The plans would allow Keeneland to collect revenues from Instant Racing machines without locating a casino on the grounds of its Lexington racetrack and auction facility. The racing commission passed rules allowing for the operation of the devices which resemble slot machines in 2010, and since then, two tracks, Ellis Park in Henderson and Kentucky Downs in Franklin, have opened Instant Racing parlors.
Under the plan, Keeneland would bulldoze Thunder Ridge and build a new track nearly 100 miles away in Corbin, near the Tennessee border. The track would conduct approximately 12 to 14 race dates for Quarter Horses during the summer, Thomason said, while the Instant Racing parlor would operate perhaps 300 machines.
Thomason said that plans for the facility have yet to be formally adopted, and he said that Keeneland did not know how much it would spend on the facility. Thomason also declined to discuss the structure of the partnership with Full House Resorts, which operates a casino in Rising Sun, Ind., near the Cincinnati metropolitan area.
Instant Racing machines use the results of previously run horse races to generate random numbers determining payouts to players. The machines at Kentucky Downs and Ellis Park have been averaging approximately $15 million in bets each month, according to figures from the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission.
Tracks receive approximately 6.5 percent of the handle through the machines, with additional disbursements for purses and the state. Through January, with 17 months of results for the machines at Kentucky Downs and five months of results at Ellis Park, the two tracks have earned $16.5 million from the machines and distributed $2.5 million in purses and breeders awards, according to racing commission figures.
The purchase of Thunder Ridge would also give Keeneland an additional racing license at a time when the state legislature is weighing several proposals to authorize casinos in the state. If a bill passes, racetrack license holders are expected to have the inside track in the competition to award casino licenses, though a proposal recently offered by Gov. Steve Beshear did not grant the racing industry any casino-license guarantees.
On Friday, a legislator introduced a bill that would legalize Instant Racing machines, but it was questionable whether the bill would be passed during the abbreviated 2013 sessions. According to reports, several legislators, including Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer, said that they would rather wait for the court challenge to be resolved before passing a bill.
The court challenge was launched by the Family Foundation of Kentucky.

My only clear statement is you are wrong and because you read it on the internet you believe it's twue.

Let me count the number of times I have heard, "Interstate 66 will come here if I am elected." The last time being the last W/D vote. lol

"As long as the name is spelled correctly."

How quaint, he really is a believer.

Here ya go both sides of this argument.

Pro Alcohol (that means you are in favor of it[for it]) list everyone that you know for sure is working because of alcohol being legalized.

AntiAlcohol group. List all the harm that has come from alcohol sales.

Neither list people that were working before but only changed jobs and not those that stayed drunk before. Really simple isn't it?

Location undisclosed

Plans for moving and changing to a Quarter Horse track also would have to be approved by the racing commission.

"Nothing we've proposed has been met with opposition," Gabbert said. "They understand what we're trying to do."

Keeneland is looking at several undisclosed locations "in the south I-75 corridor," near Corbin, he said.

The scope of the project hasn't been determined, Keeneland and Full House said.

Williamsburg and london are "near Corbin"
Why would any smart business give the location of where they plan to buy land before they buy the land?
That means the price of land would go up. They are just saying near Corbin to misdirect people.

Or, they have already used a strawman to secure options on property near Corbin. Most big companies tie up loose ends before going public with proposed plans.
