STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, APRIL 20, 2017.....With talk of finding other uses for $15.5 million intended to prop up the state's live horse racing industry gaining steam on Beacon Hill, an industry group is preparing to ask the Legislature to put some of that money towards building a horse racing track and equestrian center.

The New England Horsemen's Benevolent and Protective Association envisions a "world-class, year-round horse park" that could host 75 racing days per year on a thoroughbred racing track, "elite national" equestrian and dressage events in an Olympic-sized indoor facility, and a retraining and retirement facility for up to 40 horses.
