Northfield Park majority owner Brock Milstein has been cited as saying that upgrades will be coming to the Ohio racino, including the possibility of an off-track wagering area within the track’s casino area.

Milstein’s comments have come via a report by D’Arcy Egan in The Plain Dealer which states that Milstein is now working on a two-year master plan to improve the track's standardbred racing experience.

“Horse racing is extremely important to us,” Milstein was quoted as saying. “It will add as much bang for the buck as the investments we’ve made in the Rocksino. You can’t expect it to happen overnight, after spending more than $250 million to get the Rocksino up and running in less than a year.

“Northfield Park is not going to take a back seat, but we are concerned about going too fast and hurting both operations. We’ve now become a great entertainment destination. Over time, you’re going to see us build the racing operation back to where it should be.”
