Twin River extends greyhound racing
LINCOLN, R.I. - The struggling Twin River gambling parlor says it will host greyhound racing into the summer, rather than close the track this month as initially planned.
Twin River officials on Tuesday told the state Department of Business Regulation that they would suspend dog racing for the year on May 31.
The move is a precursor to a possible bankruptcy filing.
But regulators told the Lincoln gambling facility yesterday that state law requires the track to be open for at least 125 days of the year. That means racing must continue until Aug. 8.
A Twin River spokeswoman said the facility accepts the state's calculations and will comply with the order.
