Kansas

Number of Tracks: 0

Summary:

In 1986, Kansas voters decided by referendum to amend the state constitution to allow pari-mutuel wagering at racetracks.1 The Legislature passed the Kansas Parimutuel Racing Act the following year. Greyhound racing began in 1989 with the opening of two dog tracks; Wichita Greyhound Park and The Woodlands. A third track, Camptown Greyhound Park, opened for six months in 1995 before closing. It then reopened in 2000 under new ownership, but closed again due to financial losses at the end of the year.2 By 2008, live racing had ceased at all Kansas greyhound tracks. Greyhound racing itself, however, remains legal in this state.3
