Colonial Downs logoThere’s no word on how long the Colonial Downs off-track betting parlor in Vinton will be closed, but it won’t be open for the Kentucky Derby tomorrow. The parent race track in New Kent County is embroiled in a dispute with the Virginia Horsemen’s Association over the length of its thoroughbred racing season. Without a contract the two sides are stalemated – no racing, and no off-track betting parlor in Vinton, as WFIR’s Gene Marrano reports.
