THACKERVILLE, Okla. -- The state of Oklahoma is trying to seize a plot of land where illegal horse races were being run.

Attorney General Drew Edmonson says the owners of the land in Love County knew illegal commercial gambling was occuring on the property, and that makes it eligible to be seized by the state.

Authorities raided the 97-acre plot near Thackerville in July.

Two officials from the Red River Playgrounds pleaded guilty in November to felony charges.

If the land is successfully seized, Edmonson says it would be sold at auction.

    I happen to know that the owners of the estate did not know there was illegal gambling going on at the property in question. If everything there was illegal, why did the state let the 2 people mentioned go with a slap on the hand?
