Prohibit Wagering On Simulcast Greyhound Races

Concerning a prohibition against wagering on races of greyhounds that are simulcast from out-of-state tracks at which the races are conducted.
2023 Regular Session
Gaming, Lottery, & Racing
Bill Summary

Current law prohibits racing of greyhounds in Colorado; however, it is legal to wager on greyhound races that are conducted at out-of-state race tracks and simulcast for viewing in off-track betting venues in Colorado. The bill makes it unlawful in Colorado to wager on any race of greyhounds that is conducted at, and simulcast from, a track that is outside of Colorado.

The bill also creates the greyhound welfare and adoption fund and requires that, of the money that is paid to the department of revenue by licensees for the privilege of conducting races and operating in-state simulcast facilities, the department must transfer to the fund:

  • $25,000 on January 1, 2025; and
  • $50,000 on January 1, 2026.

The fund is repealed, effective August 1, 2026.

The bill also makes conforming amendments.
