Thistledown may move with opening of Cleveland's Horseshoe Casino

CLEVELAND - One of northeast Ohio's landmark horse racing tracks might be moving.

Thistledown, which is currently located in North Randall, could be moving slightly south, to the Akron area.

The horse race track is owned by Rock Ohio Caesars, the same group that owns the new Horseshoe Casino Cleveland, which is set to open soon.

The company has said it doesn't want the two gambling destinations to compete with each other in such close proximity.

It's not clear when a decision will be made to relocate Thistledown or leave the race track at its current site.
