Sold!: Harrah's Agrees to Buy Thistledown Racetrack

Posted by Web Staff -



Cleveland, OH (WOIO) - Thistledown almost has a new owner.

A bankruptcy judge approved Tuesday the sale of the race track to Harrah's for $89.5 million dollars.

Almost $48 million of that money is contingent upon video slot machines actually going into the track and six others in Ohio.

In other words, the big boys are making sure they are not left out if gambling comes to Ohio.
