The River Downs horse racing track near Cincinnati will reopen next spring as a racino and with a new name.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the racino will employ 700 people, and host 1,600 video slot machines.
Pinnacle Entertainment says 30 acres adjacent to the racino could be developed into a hotel later.
The track just east of Cincinnati and along the Ohio River opened as River Downs in 1925.
