NOVA SCOTIA, Canada – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Racino Royale, Inc. ("RR") (OTCBB: RCNR) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to purchase Tartan Downs Raceway in Sydney, Nova Scotia.

The acquisition is Racino Royale's first stage in fulfilling its mission statement to own and operate live entertainment destinations that appeal to tourists and residents of all ages and gender that goes beyond horseracing.
