Representatives from Kentucky's thoroughbred horse tracks have pitched legalized casino gambling to a state legislative panel.

The Kentucky General Assembly opened its 2008 session on Tuesday. Lawmakers are expected during the coming months to consider a proposed constitutional amendment that would authorize limited casino gambling throughout the state.

Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear says the state can take in about $500 million per year in new revenue if casino gambling is permitted.

Horse track representatives said Wednesday they're not certain exactly where the casinos will be located if voters approve the amendment.
