    Three proposals are jockeying to return thoroughbred horse racing to Massachusetts.

    The Massachusetts Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association says it's working with an investment group to build a $60 million track on 280-acres in Rowley, near the New Hampshire state line.

    John Grossi, who founded the Latitude Sports Club chain, is leading the Rowley Group's proposal. The group is expected to pitch its plan to town officials later this month.

    It's the third proposal to emerge since Suffolk Downs hosted its last live races in June.
