Legal off-track betting parlors in Virginia are closed by a dispute over the future of horse racing in Virginia. The fight is between horsemen and the state’s only thoroughbred race track at Colonial Downs in New Kent County. The problem at Colonial Downs is happening at race tracks across the nation.
