Ohio's new racinos told: don't forget horse racing

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio State Racing Commission is asking developers of two new racinos in Ohio to add more seating for people who want to watch live horse racing.

Commissioners say the tracks near Youngstown and in Dayton that will feature slots-like video terminals need to put a little more attention on live-racing.

Officials of Penn National Gaming say they'll come back to the commission on Wednesday with more information and plans.

But a company official says the developers think the current plans have enough seats to meet demand.

Penn National's plan is to move Raceway Park out of Toledo to a new site in Dayton. It also wants to relocate Beulah Park's thoroughbred racing from suburban Columbus to a new track near the Ohio Turnpike just outside Youngstown.
