In an ideal world, The state would issue multiple licenses for racetracks and let free market competition decide which company's plan best satisfied the consumer at an acceptable return for investors.

The gambling setup in Ohio and most other states is a good example of crony capitalism. Firms like Penn National pay big upfront fees to get a monopoly in an area to lockout competition. Then, bureaucrats, who are self proclaimed gambling experts, get to impose their whims on their regulated subjects. I won't lose any sleep if this "racino" comes up lame.
