Connecticut Race and Sports Wagering

Connecticut allows horse and dog racing; however, there are currently no venues that offer live racing. Offtrack betting is still available.

Offtrack betting and live racing were first introduced in 1976 at the Plainfield Greyhound Park.

In May 2005, Plainfield Greyhound Park closed temporarily so that construction could begin on an auto racing and entertainment center. However, by late August, simulcasting also shut down due to low attendance. The site remains vacant, with no plans to resume dog racing.

Shoreline Star Greyhound Park suspended racing operations midway through the last decade as well. Eventually, Winners – a division of Sportech – purchased the park and converted it into a bar and grill that offers offtrack betting.

Winners operates several other OTBs in the state. Sportech also powers, which accepts bets on horse racing made by residents of Connecticut.

In October 2017, Connecticut lawmakers announced plans to legalize sports betting as early as 2019, pending the Supreme Court's decision to strike down The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) of 1992. The state's legislature adjourned on 9 May 9 2018, just five days before the SCOTUS ruling, and Governor Dannel Malloy expressed a desire to call a special session on the issue.
