Officials announced on Wednesday that the Miami Valley Gaming and Raceway, a joint venture between Churchill Downs, Inc. and Delaware North Companies Gaming & Entertainment, that the facility will open earlier than previously expected.
Originally, the new racino was on track for completion in early 2014, but at a job fair this week, the opening date was changed to December 12.
The facility, which is currently under construction between Cincinnati and Dayton, is expected to create more than 500 jobs. Licenses and other assets of the Lebanon Trotting Club Inc. and Miami Trotting Club Inc. were purchased in 2012 by the partnership, and transferred to the new facility.
Miami Valley Gaming is currently accepting resumes online.
