AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The last major hurdle has been cleared for the Valley’s long-awaited racino in Austintown.
The Ohio Racing Commission Thursday gave its formal approval to the schedule for Hollywood Gaming at Mahoning Valley Racecourse.
The first thoroughbred racing will be held Nov. 24. In 2015, which will be the first full year for the new facility, there will be 100 days of racing.
The racing permit is seen as the last step in the process of being allowed to operate video lottery terminals at the racino when it opens this fall.
