MTR Gaming, which operates Mountaineer Race Track and Gaming Center in West Virginia, is willing to invest $56 million to build Presque Isle Downs in Pennsylvania.

Building the new racing track in Summit Township raises a possible comeback for thoroughbred racing in Erie County.

Pennsylvania currently has four racetracks in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Harrisburg and the Poconos.
