    Locals hopeful about new Beulah Park era
    Saturday, March 13, 2010
    BY DEAN NARCISO
    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

    Beulah Park is as much a part of Grove City as the city’s old train depot or Broadway, the main drag downtown. Locals know it’s there, especially on race days, but they don’t necessarily think a lot about it.

    So when news of a new owner for the horse-racing track hit the streets this week, people stopped to listen.

    Tracks await slots decision
    Ohio horse industry could see shakeup
    Feb. 12, 2011

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich plans to take a position soon on whether to allow video slot terminals at Ohio’s seven horse racetracks, which in turn may determine if tracks in suburban Columbus and Toledo move to Dayton and Youngstown, respectively.

    What will John do? That’s big question on Penn National race track plan
    Business First – by Jeff Bell
    Date: Thursday, February 10, 2011

    After about an hour of talking with members of the Ohio State Racing Commission on Thursday, Penn National Gaming Inc. President Tim Wilmott still hadn’t addressed the proverbial elephant in the room.

    What does Gov. John Kasich think about the proposal to allow the state’s seven horse racing tracks to install video lottery terminals – the equivalent of electronic slot machines? That would be important from Penn National’s perspective because its plan to relocate two race tracks, including Beulah Park, to other cities pivots around the approval of video slots.

    I don’t know all the ins and outs of the BS politics that go into gambling, but I always thought gambling is gambling is gambling. No matter how you chance or risk your money to win more money, IT’S GAMBLING, right? So with that said, you can gamble your whole paycheck on the 3 digit, the four digit, the red ball, the mega-plier, mega millions, the kicker, the powerball, the hundreds of scratch offs the Ohio lottery invents every year and etc. You can blot your hundreds of BINGO cards to your hearts content and play your tear offs also. And who can forget the ponies, BUT how dare you put slot machines in their facilities. I am so glad to see that some people have such good morals when it comes to gambling. I hope everyone can see the sarcasm in this. And to say that it’s wrong to have slots in this area, but fine in another is just ridiculous.

    Bob Hunter commentary: Beulah Park alive again for a day as end nears
    By Bob Hunter
    The Columbus Dispatch
    Sunday May 6, 2012 5:09 AM

    A trip to Beulah Park on Kentucky Derby day is little like seeing a ghost town reborn. There are faces in those once-abandoned betting windows. Laughter where there was silence. Live bodies in those deserted seats.
