Proposal for horse racing in Brockton wins support from mayor

By Sean P. Murphy
Boston Globe
October 20, 2014

Plans to bring thoroughbred horse racing to Brockton for the first time in almost 15 years on Monday picked up the strong endorsement of Mayor Bill Carpenter, who told members of the state gambling commission that the shutdown of racing at Suffolk Downs presents a welcome opportunity.

“This would be a real positive for the city,” Carpenter said in an interview after testifying before Commissioners Gayle Cameron and Bruce Stebbins at a short public hearing.

George Carney, owner of Raynham Park, a former dog racing track, announced plans last month to run 60 days of racing at the Brockton Fairgrounds in 2015, which would make it New England’s only venue for thoroughbred racing after the closing of Suffolk Downs.

Carpenter said horse racing would bring hundreds of thousands of dollars in new tax revenues to the city, give a boost to owners of local restaurants and other businesses, plus provide some positive public relations for a city often in the headlines for crime.

“We want people to come into the city and have a nice time and maybe change the image of the city a little,” he said.

The bid to bring thoroughbred racing to the Brockton Fairgrounds began with the award of the Greater Boston casino license to Wynn Resorts.
