Boston track to unveil casino plans

Tuesday June 5, 2012

BOSTON (AP) - The owners of Suffolk Downs are set to unveil new details of a proposed resort casino at the 77-year-old Boston horse racing track.

The announcement scheduled for Tuesday will include architectural renderings of the proposal and other specifics.

Suffolk Downs and its partner, Caesars Entertainment of Las Vegas, plan to bid for one of the three resort casino licenses under the state's new gambling law.

The site borders the East Boston neighborhood and the city of Revere. Suffolk Downs officials have said they plan to negotiate host community agreements with both communities that would have to be approved by voters.
