Developer drops plans, at least for now, for sports betting parlor at former track

A developer has dropped plans for a sports-betting parlor at the site of a former Cherry Hill racetrack, according to a decision in a court fight over the proposal.

Cherry Hill Towne Center cited the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting government restrictions in mothballing its project “at least for the foreseeable future,” U.S. District Judge Renee Marie Bumb said in a ruling Thursday.

The judge approved the developer’s request to drop its lawsuit against GS Park Racing, the track’s former operator.

GSPR contends a restrictive covenant on the property gives it the exclusive right to offer gambling at the site. Cherry Hill Towne Center’s lawsuit sought a court ruling that the covenant was unenforceable.
