Businessman Buys Woodlands Track in Kansas City, Kansas

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A businessman has bought the Woodlands racetrack in Kansas City, Kansas. The price that Nevada businessman Phil Ruffin paid Woodlands owner Howard Grace for the track wasn't disclosed. The Wichita Eagle reports that Ruffin, who owns the Treasure Island casino and hotel in Las Vegas, hopes to be able to simultaneously reopen the Woodlands and two tracks he already owns, Wichita Greyhound Park in Park City and Camptown Greyhound Park in Frontenac. He anticipates hiring 500 to 700 people at the Woodlands.
