This new racing track and gaming project is located just west of Youngstown, OH. The one-mile thoroughbred horse track and 118,000 sf gaming facility was constructed on a 195-acre greenﬁeld site. The Hollywood inspired casino brand, with a more contemporary design, was continued from the exterior to the interior. The gaming portion features 850 slots, 152-food court, 141-seat sports bar, 53-seat entertainment lounge including performance stage and covered exterior smoking lanai slot area. The Grandstand portion features 53-seat simulcast theater, 154-seat terraced dining, 129-seat clubhouse, 638-seat trackside concourse and technical ofﬁcials penthouse. The racing portion features ten horse barns with 1,000 stalls, shipping barn, jockey dorm and maintenance buildings. The fast-tracked project opened in September 2014 with a construction cost as $90,000,000. While at a previous ﬁ rm, RJTR staff members provided full architectural and construction services including coordination of all engineering and interior design consultants.
RJTR has recently completed the design and construction of an expansion to the exterior gaming area as well as fit-out of additional interior gaming and a new high denomination slot area.
