“As the sports gaming industry continues to grow across the United States, we’re excited to partner with TwinSpires for the 2021 playoffs,” commented USL Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships Josh Keller.

Additionally, the collaboration looks to announce offers and promotions for fans living in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Tennessee that open sports betting accounts.
