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.

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)
