Tools

By Alabama News Network

VictoryLand in Shorter will resume betting on simulcast horse and dog races on Friday.

Owner Milton McGregor said the simulcast operation will open at 10:30 a.m. and wagering will start at 11 a.m.

The entire VictoryLand operation has been closed since the state attorney general raided its casino Feb. 19. The casino remains closed. McGregor said he's happy to put some of the employees back to work in the simulcast operation. He said the simulcast races will be offered Wednesdays through Sundays.

There are many more jobs that have been lost due to AG Strange...in the meantime the Indian casinos are going full-force, without any benefit to the State! We need Victoryland open!!
