Since the Supreme Court ruling, Monmouth Park in New Jersey has instituted sports gambling with much early success. According to the Asbury Park Press , the Monmouth Park Sports Book by William Hill generated a handle of $8,176,212 the first 17 days after sports betting was launched on June 14. “We are extremely pleased with our numbers,” Dennis Drazen, president and CEO of Darby Development LLC, which operates Monmouth Park, told the Press. “We think they show there is a huge appetite for sports betting.” New Jersey was one of a few states that had already passed laws putting it in position to institute sports gambling if it was made legal for states to do so. Kentucky is not one of those states, though legislation has been proposed . In the meantime, Bryan Pettigrew, chief marketing office for Breeders’ Cup Limited, told America’s Best Racing he hopes Thursday’s symposium will provide information and foster ideas on how to take advantage of the new opportunities.
