Agreement reached over horse stalls at Austintown racino

Posted: Updated:

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (AP) - The operator of a new racino in Austintown has reached an agreement with the horse racing industry over the number of horse stalls to be built at the track, along with other terms.

The deal comes after state horse racing officials had said they would hold off on approving racing dates for the facility until the number of horse stalls at the racino was settled.

Penn National Gaming and the Ohio Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association announcement the agreement Monday.

The two sides say 988 stalls in 13 barns will be built, with another 54 stalls for horses typically not kept there.

The agreement also covers revenue sharing on proceeds from video lottery gambling to boost race purses, as well as simulcast of races originating at the track.
