VictoryLand reopening simulcast race wagering

SHORTER, Ala. (AP) – 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.
