Harrah's Buys Thistledown Track For US$34m
Harrah's has purchased Ohio's Thistledown racetrack in Cleveland from MI Developments for US$43 million, reported The Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper. Last year Harrah's had reached an earlier agreement with Magna Entertainment Corp (a subsidiary of MI Developments) to purchase Thistledown for US$89.5 million, but that deal fell through when the Ohio state legislature did not approve the addition of video lottery terminals at the track. Harrah's also owns Louisiana Downs (in Louisiana) & is a co-owner of Turfway Park (in Kentucky).
