Construction began this week on the 100-acre site near the I-10 interchange in Gretna that will bring a horse racing and a poker facility to the city. City leaders and officials were at the site Friday morning in Gretna excited about what's to come for their city.

Gretna Mayor Helen Franks says, "We have been waiting on something to come and happen for Gretna so Gretna can actually grow and bring some money and jobs to this city that we very much need."

The site is also expected to bring in thousands to play poker. It is scheduled to be completed by this winter.
