    I will not vote for gambling if the race tracks are to have an “exclusive”. Why should taxpayers favor the racing industry being the sole beneficiary of such an amendment? IMO each entity, be it Churchill Downs, Galt House, Caesar’s or Knights of Columbus, should be required to submit a proposal. The state will choose on the basis: “what’s in it for the state?”
