Kentucky Downs and EquiLottery Enter Broadcast Rights Agreement

Kentucky-based entities Kentucky Downs and EquiLottery have entered into an agreement that will allow the use of races from the Franklin, Kentucky racetrack as the basis for EquiLottery, a new lottery game based on the results of live horse racing. This marks the first such agreement between a Kentucky racetrack and EquiLottery.

“We applaud the vision of the entire EquiLottery team as they have continued to press forward with an exciting and unprecedented product,” said Kentucky Downs SVP and General Manager Ted Nicholson. “This is the only product we have seen that truly has the potential to expand the distribution and exposure of live horse racing. The implications of this are tremendous for the long-term viability of the sport by greatly increasing its popularity and reach in daily pop culture. The time has come for this game to see its day in Kentucky and we are proud to be the first racetrack in the state to sign an agreement with EquiLottery.”
