BOSTON (AP) - A developer is proposing to build a horse track, hotel and entertainment complex in southeastern Massachusetts.

The Boston Globe reports a Quincy developer is promoting the plan for Wareham, with Tom O’Connell, an executive at Marina Bay and the Granite Links golf club, unveiling the concept Tuesday.

It would need legislative approval.

New England’s last thoroughbred horse track, Boston’s Suffolk Downs, hosted its final live races in June. Sterling Suffolk Racecourse, which operated the track, ran a handful of summertime races since losing out on its bid to build a resort casino there in 2014.

In southeastern Massachusetts, the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe has so far been unable to build a casino in Taunton and the Aquinnah Wampanoag tribe needs to secure local approvals before building a casino on Martha’s Vineyard.
