Subject to a local referendum, LD 1111 would allow the Downs to operate as a fully-integrated racino, with modern gaming, entertainment, retail and a four-star hotel, all built around and focusing on the great sport that is Maine harness racing.
"All we're asking for at Scarborough Downs is fairness and a level playing field," said track owner Sharon Terry, "and a chance for a family-owned business with deep Maine roots to continue its proud 64-year legacy of being Maine's premier racing venue. LD 1111 is crucial for the survival of the harness racing industry in Maine."
Scheduled to speak at the event are:
Sharon Terry, Owner of Scarborough Downs
Representative Don Marean (R-Hollis)
Representative Jeffrey Gifford (R-Lincoln) - bill sponsorSenator John Tuttle (D-Sanford)
