Racing Commission says it wants more horse stalls at Austintown racino

Published: Thu, October 24, 2013 @ 2:02 p.m.

COLUMBUS — The state racing commission voiced its concern today about the number of horse stalls planned at a racino already under construction in Austintown.

Commission Chairman Robert Schmitz said Penn National Gaming’s current plans for 10 barns with 76 stalls each are troubling, given that other tracks in the state have more than 1,000 stalls at their sites and the investment the company is making in tracks in other states.

“You’re a brand new track in Ohio and you want to do less stalls than what the other tracks in Ohio want to do?” Schmitz asked. “A thousand stalls seems to be the benchmark for Ohio, and you’re not hitting that number.”

I don't know anything about horse racing. What I think is that, given this statement and past history, the racing commission is trying to screw this project into the ground. Is the current plan a surprise to them?
