I love gambling.
In other people’s states.

A developer with a successful track record of building casinos in Florida is now making a bet on gambling coming to Massachusetts.
Coastal Development Massachusetts LLC, headed by developer Richard Fields of New York, has purchased the largest ownership interest in the company that runs Suffolk Downs racetrack. He is expected to try to turn the tired horse-racing venue into a modern entertainment complex that would include shops, restaurants, live entertainment, family activities, and — if state government embraces it — casino gambling.
