    A 109-year-old New Hampshire racetrack has been put up for sale.

    Rockingham Park in Salem made the announcement this week, according to the Union Leader, stating it has had years of unsuccessful efforts to run a casino at the site.

    Live horse racing at the iconic racetrack ended in 2010. The park features full-card simulcasting from thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racetracks from around the country.

    "It's tragic," says Donna Morris, president of the Greater Salem Chamber of Commerce, according to the paper. "That's a huge piece of history that's going away."
