After falling short in Tewksbury, Penn National moved to buy the Plainridge Racecourse track.
If the state awards Penn National its sole slot parlor license, and if it is permitted to continue harness racing, the company would acquire the 89-acre Plainridge property at the intersection of Interstate 495 and Route 1.
The track would be expanded to fit as many as 1,250 slot machines, according to Boston.com.
