State regulators today questioned officials of a Nevada company about their intentions for the Bluffs Run greyhound racetrack in Council Bluffs. Harrah’s is in the process of purchasing the dog track along with Harvey’s Casino. A member of the State Racing and Gaming Commission asked about the plans for the track after Harrah’s President Gary Loveman said the company would put the Harrah’s moniker on the casino, but not on the dog track. Loveman says Harrah’s has never run a dog track and wants to make sure Bluffs Run lives up to their standards before putting their name on the track.Loveman says if the track meets their standards, they’ll put the Harrah’s name on it. Loveman says the name issue in no way signals an intention to get rid of the dog track. On an another issue, Harrah’s has agreements with Native American Casinos in four states. Company officials were asked if they also planned any agreements with the Native American casino in Tama. Harrah’s Vice President of Development, Pete Whyan, says they do not.Harrah’s 625-million dollar stock purchase of Harvey’s and Bluffs Run could be finalized in June or early July.
