Statelines Gamblers to Have One Less Place to Bet

The Simulcast Center is being sold to an unnamed buyer who's looking at different uses for the facility.

Track officials announced in September that the track would end live racing in November but still maintain simulcast racing. With the sale of the building, simulcast racing will also come to a close.

About 850 greyhounds were housed at the track when its closing was announced. The track says most of the dogs have placed into adoptive homes while others were returned to their owners or sent to different dog tracks.
