Alabama tribe seeks to buy dog tracks

mobileThe Poarch Band of Creek Indians has purchased controlling interests of dog racing tracks in Mobile and Pensacola, according to at least one racing official.

The purchase still requires approval by the National Indian Gaming Association, according to Al.com.

The tribe owns two casinos in Alabama — the Riverside Entertainment Center in Wetumpka and the Tallapoosa Entertainment Center in Montgomery.

Gov. Bob Riley has been strongly against gambling in Alabama throughout his two terms, and has stirred controversy in recent months with his opposition to so-called bingo machines. Riley’s Task Force on Illegal Gambling has confiscated a number of gambling machines.

The tribe had long been one of the primary opponents of allowing gambling machines at the dog tracks in Mobile and Pensacola.
