Metro North Plan Could Compliment Revere’s Development

Full Story appears at Revere Journal   Mayor Dan Rizzo and Economic Development Director John Festa have scheduled the city’s second economic summit for Nov. 21 and one of the issues surely that will be discussed is state Housing and Economic Development Secretary’s Greg Bialecki’s land use plan for the newly named “Metro North” region that includes Revere and eight other communities, Chelsea, Everett, Charlestown, Winthrop, East Boston, Malden, Melrose, and Somerville. To Mayor Rizzo’s credit, he has always been receptive to collaborative and regional approaches to issues affecting Revere. He was an engaged participant in Bialecki’s conference that was held at the Wyndham Hotel in Chelsea and he is certainly weighing the plan’s potential impact on Revere’s ongoing and future plans for development.

Suffolk Downs marks its final day of live races

By PHIL MARCELO  Boston.com / Associated Press   BOSTON (AP) — Suffolk Downs, New England’s last thoroughbred horse track, celebrated its storied past with a series of tributes Saturday on its final day of live races. The once-grand Boston track recognized some of the most famous horses, jockeys, announcers and performers during its nearly 80-year history with live and video presentations. Among those highlighted were ‘‘Eddie Wrack,’’ the horse that won the track’s inaugural race in 1935, and ‘‘Seabiscuit,’’ the legendary Depression-era thoroughbred that won a major race held there in 1937. The track, which will continue to offer simulcast betting until December, also cleared out its promotional inventory, selling vintage souvenirs and other memorabilia. Sale proceeds will benefit CANTER New England and the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation, which help horses transition to life after racing. Chip Tuttle, Suffolk Downs’ chief operating officer, hopes the tributes offer an ‘‘appropriate appreciation’’ for …

Suffolk Downs To Close Following Casino Vote

Story by Sara Morrison- Boston.com A casino may be in Everett’s future, but horse racing will soon be a thing of Boston’s past: the Suffolk Downs racetrack will be closing as a result of the state gaming commission’s vote to give Wynn Resorts the casino license over Mohegan Sun. Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs teamed up on the proposal, which would have put a resort and casino on Suffolk’s property. This would have given a big cash boost to the struggling racetrack. Without it, Suffolk COO Chip Tuttle said in a statement, the track cannot survive. “We are extraordinarily disappointed as this action is likely to cost the Commonwealth thousands of jobs, small business and family farms,” Tuttle said. “We will be meeting with employees and horsemen over the next several days to talk about how we wind down racing operations as a 79-year legacy of Thoroughbred racing in Massachusetts …
