The Plain Dealer reports that such a move is being discussed now among the track's owners and state officials...the result of a proposal to add slot machines at the horse racing track currently located in North Randall.
Rock Ohio Caesars owns both Thistledown and the soon-to-open Horseshoe Casino on Cleveland's Public Square. The company wants to reduce competition to its own new casino by moving the race track and slots operation.
