State's second "racino" now open

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The state's second "racino" is now open at Remington Park in Oklahoma City.

The combination horse-racing track and casino opened Monday afternoon with 650 gaming machines on the second floor at the track.

The first "racino" opened at Blue Ribbon Downs in Sallisaw in October. The third is expected to open next month at Will Rogers Downs in Claremore.

Between 10 and 25 percent of casino profits at the racinos goes to the state with the money to increase purses at the horse tracks and to support horsemen's organizations and breeders. The percentage varies depending on the amount of profit.
