Kentucky’s Democrat governor, Andy Beshear, has signed into law a bill that will legalise sports betting in the Bluegrass State.

House Bill 551 will make nine racetracks eligible to offer on-site retail sports betting, while each track will also be able to partner with up to three online operators, meaning up to 27 licences may be issued by the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission (KHRC).

The bill also establishes a two-tier system to taxation, with online operators to be taxed at 14.25% of gross gambling revenue, compared to the 9.75% imposed on the retail offerings.
