Lawsuit Stalls Plans for Dallas' Second Horse Track

Plans to bring more competitive horse racing to Dallas could be on hold.

Owners of the Dallas City Limits Property Company want to build a $10 million Class 2 race track just outside of Lancaster.  Businessman David Alameel and state representative Yvonne Davis claim to be those owners, though a lawsuit against the pair suggests they are not the sole owners.

Dallas County is already home to another horse racing track, Lone Star Park. The proposed track is a Class 2 track, meaning the number of race days in a calendar year does not exceed 44 days.  A Class 1 track races for a minimum of 45 days in the calendar year.

The Texas Racing Commission said the lawsuit could delay the license application, stalling the plan.
