TUCSON, Ariz. — Tucson's Rillito racetrack is partnering with Turf Paradise in Phoenix to endorse off-track betting at midtown tavern.

The Phoenix horse track will make money from the off-track betting, but they're promising Rillito will get a cut.

This all comes after the governor signed a new law earlier this month that evens the playing filed for off-track betting.

Tucson's City Council will vote on making midtown tavern an off-track site tomorrow.
