Posted by Web Staff - email | Facebook | Twitter

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Thistledown racetrack is sold!

Harrah's has bought the track for $43 million.

It's the second time the casino operator has made a bid.

The last deal fell through because there was a condition about bringing slot machines to race tracks.

That issue will now be on the November ballot.

Tuesday's auction was the second auction of the North Randall track in eight months.
