RI to suspend greyhound racing in 2009

Twin River Gambling Parlor and Dog Track says it plans to suspend greyhound racing May 31 but the State Regulatory Commission argues it must stay open until August 8 to comply with the rule to run no fewer than 125 dog races for the year. (Twin River is obligated to hold at least 125 racing days as a condition for offering its video slot machines.) In any case, the dog track will be closing in 2009 for what it states as financial reasons.
