2 new names in Suffolk Downs casino picture

Hard Rock, Rush Street may seek a role

Two gambling companies familiar with Massachusetts, Hard Rock International and Rush Street Gaming, are emerging as top prospects to join a Suffolk Downs casino venture, days after the East Boston racetrack jettisoned Caesars Entertainment from the $1 billion project, say people familiar with the Suffolk Downs search for a new partner.

Suffolk Downs was sent scrambling for a new casino operator Friday, after learning that investigators performing background checks on casino applicants would recommend to the state gambling commission that Caesars be disqualified from bidding for a license, a shocking turn for one of the biggest names in the gambling business.
