CDI and Delaware North now have the go-ahead to jointly develop a new racino in southwestern Ohio on Rt. 75.  It is called Miami Valley Racing and Gaming.  They purchased all the rights and assets from Lebanon racetrack.  They will have a 5/8 harness track and, of course, a nice big casino.  I keep saying, buy that CD stock.

Watch Churchill make the track bigger to a one mile track.

Unfortunately, there is almost zero interest in harness racing these days.  Curling has a bigger following.  Sad

They couldn't look east to PA and see that increased purses just enriched a few horsemen, while adding basically nothing to the pools?

when churchill owned hoosier park they did a good job of getting the signal out on their simo network
harness pools reached over $500k and tbreds over $1 million
then indy downs opened and took 1/2 of the casino subsidy which led cdi to get out

As APCD Dan reported, they are building a new facility.

It will never happen unless Dick can do some other track out of their dates and apply the simulcast revenue to the purchase of a lighting system.

AP had a short lived harness meet in the late/mid 70's.  I don't think that I have ever been colder that watching the races at Arlington in mid-January.  They ran a lot of the races at a mile and an eighth.

If they demolish and build a new facility i dont think it will be a booming casino with the cincy casino nearby, indy downs, and a host of others.   That area is the equivalent of  hanover park on crack.  The big tourist attraction is the hustler store.   I just cant see people from kentucky and cincy choosing their casino over the other ones.

Maybe macomb on crack?  When all the ohio casinos are situated that one will have the least revenue based on location and competition.   At least they are allowed to compete.  We cant even get casinos in rockford and lake county to keep people out of wisconsin casinos.  Which i may say have excellent smoke free otbs and drf and harness program kiosks.

From all I've read it's not even going to be in Lebanon. "Exit 29 between Dayton and Cincinnati", wherever that is.
