Flutter Entertainment’s FanDuel Group has announced plans to make a multi-million-dollar investment in Fairmount Park Racetrack in Collinsville, Illinois.

The financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed, but the property will be rebranded as FanDuel Sportsbook and Horse Racing.

The operator would also undertake a major revamp of the venue and open a retail sportsbook at the location.

The agreement will see FanDuel’s sports betting license in Illinois transferred from the Boyd Gaming-owned Par-A-Dice Casino to the racing venue.
