Final approval has changed the current gaming compact between California and the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians allowing the tribe to offer off-track betting at their Chumash Casino Resort in Santa Ynez.
As of now, there are not any concrete plans to add the game to the casino. However, the tribe wanted the compact to at least give them the option to add it later if they wished to. Other tribal casinos are currently offering the game.
The original gaming compact between the tribe and state went into effect in 2015. The amendment would allow for satellite wagering venue to be built inside the tribe's casino. This off-track venue would allow for guests to bet on horse races.
On August 02, Gov. Jerry Brown signed the amendment. On August 28, it was voted approved by the state Senate. On August 28, it was passed by the Assembly.
