From project management to performance improvement and expansion strategies, Prentice Salter brings decades of experience in gaming, hospitality and entertainment projects.

He organized and led a team of experts in Virginia which successfully lobbied legislators to change laws around horse racing and wagering, which led to the purchase of a long-abandoned thoroughbred racetrack and the introduction of numerous historical horse racing facilities across the state.

In 2022, he led the legislative and regulatory efforts necessary in Kentucky to earn the last horse racing license available there, opening the first gaming facility in Eastern Kentucky in October 2023.
