FILE - In this May 19, 2017, file photo, fans place bets ahead of the running of the Black-Eyed Susan horse race at Pimlico in Baltimore. Horse racing has been struggling for years to regain a strong footing on the national sports landscape, and owners hope to use betting on other sports to bring fans back to the tracks. The gamble is not a sure thing since not everyone is on board with the Supreme Court’s ruling earlier this week that allows states to offer sports betting. Track owners believe horse racing has an advantage since race tracks in many states will be among the first to allow sports gambling. Many race tracks already offer slot machines and table games _ popularly known as racinos _ in addition to betting on horses. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File)
