Horse racing was briefly legal in Alabama but has since been eliminated. That said, they still have a few greyhound tracks operating in the state which also function as an Off-Track betting site for thoroughbreds. A few of their casinos such as Victoryland Casino Shorts also offer simulcasting of national thoroughbred racing as well.
In 1971 Alabama legalized pari-mutuel wagering at horse and dog racetracks. The state had once horse racing track, the Birmingham Race Course, but it closed in 1995. Currently there are three dog racing tracks in Mobile, Macon and Jefferson counties that conduct live racing and allow wagering on horse racing simulcasts from other states. A fourth facility in Greene County, offers simulcasting only.
State laws do not address online wagering, except to outlaw the operation of any type of online gambling website in the state. But because the state allows pari-mutuel betting, numerous advance deposit wagering (ADW) platforms.
Legal Alabama horse racing betting sites
Alabama offers limited online horse racing betting sites for residents, but pari-mutuel wagering is legal if not widely available in 2020.
All of these sites offer online or phone wagering (via mobile app) on horse racing to residents of Alabama. But others, like TVG.com, do not, apparently due to the uncertain status of online wagering in the Cotton State.
