River Downs Undergoes Major Changes, Including Name
ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WKRC) -- River Downs will be no more. Instead the local race track that is reinventing itself, will return as Belterra Park.
Local 12's Rich Jaffe got a tour of the work going on. When it reopens, Belterra Park will have racing, off-track betting, 1600 video slot machines and six restaurants.
Belterra park will open May 1. The first racing is expected to start May 8. There will be about 100 days of racing. There will be a dirt track and eventually turf racing.
Owner Pinnacle Entertainment believed the changes will put $300 million dollars a year into the local economy.
Rich Jaffe will have more of a look inside at 4 and 5.
