Karl Sleight will moderate a panel at the 2021 Racing and Gaming Conference at Saratoga this year on Monday, August 17. The conference will run through Tuesday, August 18.

Karl will moderate the session on Monday titled,  “Casinos/Racinos and Horse Racing Decoupling.” 

A short description of this session from the program is below:
