QUAPAW, OK - The Bureau of Indian Affairs gave final approval to a gaming compact between the Quapaw Tribe and the state of Oklahoma for off-track wagering at the new Downstream Casino. The approval was published in the Federal Register on Tuesday.

Casino spokesman Sean Harrison said the horse-racing book will open at 11am daily with simulcasts of thoroughbred, quarter horse and harness racing broadcast on 15 televisions. There is seating for about 60 people, and food service is available from the Buffalo Grille restaurant.

"It's a real nice set-up," Harrison said. "We're proud to open it up, and we're excited about tomorrow (Wednesday). We have everything that many Oklahoma casinos have to offer at this point."

The first simulcast on Wednesday came from Delaware Park racetrack. Nine other tracks were also scheduled for that day. The casino also will schedule special events during major races like the Kentucky Derby, Harrison said.

The new Downstream Casino Resort is located in Oklahoma at the border with Missouri and Kansas about five miles west of Joplin, Missouri.
