This was the place that once hosted Sea-Biscuit and other premier horses of the day, and now falls victim to changes in a gaming industry that now revolves around lotteries and casinos.

The 160-acre track, located just outside down-town Boston, had hoped to revive its sagging fortunes with a $1.1 billion Mohegan Sun casino project.

But after the proposal was rejected last week, the operators said they have no choice but to close the nearly 80-year-old track.
