CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) -- The opening of a casino at Will Rogers Downs horse racing track in Claremore is being delayed again.

The "racino" was originally expected to open in July, but the opening was delayed to late this month. Now Cherokee Nation spokesman Mike Miller says the company that's to test and certify gaming machines can't do so until after Thanksgiving. Miller says the delay will be at least two weeks.

The company testing the machines says it's currently busy certifying games at Remington Park in Oklahoma City which is to open its casino on Monday.
