SARATOGA SPRINGS, NEW YORK – Lippes Mathias is pleased to announce that its partner, Karl J. Sleight, is set to moderate a panel presentation at The Racing and Gaming Conference at Saratoga held at the Saratoga Hilton from August 14-16, 2023.

The panel, titled "Historical Horse Racing Machines: The Tail Wagging the Horse?" aims to dissect questions concerning the rising popularity of historical horse racing machines.

This panel will delve into the impacts of these machines on the horse racing industry and the traditional gaming industry.

Industry experts who will join Sleight on the panel include Deron Hunsberger, President – North America, Ainsworth Game Technology; Keith Johnson, CRO, 1/ST Technology; and John Marshall, President and COO, Revolutionary Racing.
