    Business Courier by Jon Newberry, Staff Reporter
    Date: Monday, December 10, 2012, 4:34pm EST

    Ohio racing officials are scheduled to award racing dates for 2013 this week, but for now no one knows if, when, or how there will be live horse racing at River Downs this summer. River Downs’ 2013 meet could be moved to Beulah Park in Columbus to accommodate construction of a $250 million casino complex at the Anderson Township racing strip, according to this article in the Blood-Horse.

    No summer racing at River Downs?
    Business Courier by Jon Newberry, Staff Reporter
    Date: Monday, December 24, 2012, 10:35am EST

    Looks like it could be a long, dry summer for Greater Cincinnati fans of live horse racing. The Blood-Horse magazine is reporting there’s an agreement to shift River Downs’ summer racing meet to Beulah Park south of Columbus in 2013. The change is being made to accommodate construction of a casino at River Downs, which is on the Ohio River in suburban Cincinnati’s Anderson Township.

    Grove City officials expect future redevelopment of Beulah Park likely will contain a mix of uses, including residential, commercial and civic to attract a variety of residents and businesses.

    In an informal meeting held after the regular City Council meeting Feb. 3, officials discussed potential goals, concepts and ideas for Beulah Park after owner Penn National Gaming Inc. relocates its racing license to Youngstown later this year.

    Beulah plan could affect new library

    At least one possibility for redeveloping Beulah Park could impact where the new Grove City Library is constructed. Nothing is official or decided yet, but one possible idea for Beulah Park was presented to Grove City Council members Feb. 3 by Joe Ciminello, developer of the Pinnacle Golf Club and housing development.

    It proposes a Grove City community recreation center at the heart of the racetrack property, to become vacant this summer. And it identifies other uses including single-family and multi-family housing, about 50 acres of commercial/industrial flex space, memorial gardens and park space built around the old finish line and the community center.

    GROVE CITY, Ohio – Some say it put Grove City on the map, and now after more than 90 years, Beulah Park is closing. City leaders say they are sad to see the race track go, but eager for new development. Grove City Mayor Ike Stage remembers visiting Beulah Park back in its heyday and calls it a prized possession of the community. “As a child I remember showing up to Beulah Park to where it caused major traffic jams.”

    City starts to say farewell to Beulah
    By MARK DUBOVEC ThisWeek Community News
    • Wednesday April 30, 2014 12:13 PM

    The horses were running, but many of the people who went to Beulah Park last weekend weren’t there for the races. Beulah Park will close after a final day of races on Saturday, May 3, ending 91 years of racing at the track that was Ohio’s first thoroughbred track. On April 26, the community held a celebration to commemorate the storied history of the park, which dates back to the 1890s as fairground space.
