PLAINVILLE — Local officials lavished praise on the state’s sole remaining horse racing venue earlier this week at a virtual public hearing for next year’s license for Plainridge Park Racecourse.

Brian Kelly, chairman of the board of selectmen, told the online hearing that Plainridge “had put our town on the map.”
