Colonial Downs to Open Its Seventh Historical Horse Racing/OTB Site

Colonial Downs Group LLC received permission at the June 6 Virginia Racing Commission (VRC) meeting  to open a new “Rosie’s” satellite wagering center in Emporia, Virginia and conduct pari-mutuel wagering on Historical Horse Racing (HHR) there. 

The site will feature 150 HHR terminals, an OTB with two teller stations and six self bet machines, an R-Burger diner and an entertainment stage. This will be the seventh Rosie’s Gaming Emporium in Virginia and the first one built from the ground up. Opening is set for late September. The location is right off I-95 and will be visible to cars heading to and from North Carolina. Projected annual handle is $6 million from simulcasting and $373 million from HHR.
