Hello all,

Just wondering if there has been any progress on Magna's big Michigan Downs Progress out in Romulus????

the website (www.michigandowns.com) has been stagnant for quite a while, and a google search yields nada.

has anyone been by the site lately (i am in NYC and can't just swing by)

Ah, autumn at the Michigan Downs parking lot. I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the architectural rendering.

IMO, these are "race parks" are merely sub rosa attempts to use gambling laws from an dying industry, horse racing, to get a foot in the door for other more lucrative gaming options. A casino next to the airport would be a huge plum for whoever could pull it off.
