Live Horse Racing in Laramie County A Possibility
Live horse racing could be coming to Laramie County. County commissioners voted Tuesday to allow the owner of Wyoming Downs to offer off-track betting and horse race simulcasting at the Outlaw Saloon. The measure also gives Dynasty Development Management LLC the ability to host live race events in the county. It would have to win additional approvals from the Wyoming Pari-Mutuel Commission to gain that ability. The AP reports that the operations director of Wyoming Downs, Joan Ramos, has been talking with Cheyenne Frontier Days officials about bringing thoroughbred racing to the city.Laramie County already has one off-track betting location. Live horse races are expensive to operate and off-track betting helps subsidize the cost.
