Lease in proposed future convention center could lead to horseplay


May 10 – CATLETTSBURG – Boyd County Tax Court is set to lease its portion of the Camp Landing Entertainment District project to a Massachusetts company called Revolutionary Racing Kentucky LLC.

After unanimously adopting a first-reading order to conclude the lease, the court scheduled a special meeting on Thursday at noon to finalize the agreement.

Boyd County Executive Judge Eric Chaney declined to elaborate on Revolutionary Racing Kentucky’s plans for the site, saying he would provide more details Thursday.

However, upon digging and cross-referencing, it appears that the company is involved in the gaming industry.

According to Chaney’s reading of the order, Revolutionary Racing is incorporated in Delaware. The Delaware Secretary of State’s office has only one company listed as “Revolutionary Racing” – it’s Revolutionary Racing Kentucky LLC.

In the Kentucky Secretary of State listings, Revolutionary Racing Kentucky LLC is declared to be incorporated in Delaware. The representative authorized to sign Kentucky’s incorporation documents is Prentice Salter.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Salter is the president of ELS Gaming, a company that reopened Colonial Downs in Virginia and established 63 off-track betting venues in the Dominican Republic.

However, a Google search for “Revolutionary Racing Kentucky LLC” brings up a single web page about an “Eastern Kentucky Equestrian Center” opening in 2023, which claims to have the longest straight in North America and will have an arena. for quarter horse racing and events.

After contacting via a media relations link on the page, The Daily Independent received an email from a Steve Patterson saying he would answer questions about the facility once he got off a plane he was about to embark on Tuesday evening.

Steve Patterson is also listed as a media relations representative for ELS Gaming.
