Rock Ohio Caesars LLC (ROC) announced that it's latest Ohio gaming destination - ThistleDown Racino - will celebrate its grand opening on April 9, pending regulatory approval.
Owned and developed by ROC, a joint venture between Rock Gaming LLC and Caesars Entertainment Corporation, ThistleDown's grand opening will usher in a new era in the storied history of the nearly 90-year-old Thoroughbred racetrack-turned-racino, and will include two performances by American Idol winner and Las Vegas headliner Taylor Hicks.
After an $88 million investment and months of renovations, ThistleDown is ready to relive its heyday as a premier location for fun and entertainment with the installation of Video Lottery Terminals (VLTs) as well as new dining and nightlife options. The North Randall facility, located on 128-acres 10 miles southeast of downtown Cleveland, will continue to offer live racing from April through November at its one-mile oval racetrack, as well as simulcast racing year-round.
"We're excited about so many things as the grand 're-opening' for ThistleDown approaches," said racino General Manager Rick Skinner. "We've created 700 new jobs in this community to support these additions to our business. It is thrilling to see our new gaming floor and amenities take shape while we also prepare for our live racing schedule to start on April 19. Whether you're a gamer, a horseracing enthusiast or both, we look forward to providing all our customers the fun, entertainment and great customer service that has become synonymous with Caesar's Entertainment and the Total Rewards network."
