OTB comes to Mulligan's in The Fan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Colonial Downs said the Virginia Racing Commission has approved their tenth off-track betting site at Mulligan's Sports Grille in The Fan District on West Main Street.

The commission approved it Tuesday.  Colonial Downs received their business permit Friday and they plan to start betting Friday afternoon beginning at 4:30 p.m.

This is the fourth OTB site in the Richmond area and the second site in an already established location.  Finn McCool's Irish Pub in Innsbrook opened a satellite site in April.
