Yonkers Raceway Casino sold
« on: May 03, 2018, 08:54:50 PM »
Yonkers Raceway sold to MGM an official announcement will be made next week. It’s speculative that the agreement with the horsemen will not be renewed in the year 2020 and will be moved Belmont race track

Why would Belmont want anything to do with harness racing?

Rooney said in a statement. “We are excited to explore opportunities with potential "partners" who can build on the strong foundation we have established.”

I love the racing...but it's time to end the racing at Yonkers. The fact that it's a big time losing venture..means it's time to end.

 I FOR ONE CANT WAIT.  HARNESS PEOPLE GOING TO BELMONT, AND TELLING THE T BRED FOLKS HOW THEY HAVE BEEN DOING EVERYTHING WRONG THE LAST 30-40 YEARS, THAT THEIR BUSINESS MODEL IS NOT CORRECT AND THAT THEY SHOULD FOLLOW THE HARNESS RACING FOOTSTEPS TO THE LAND OF PROSPERITY.  THEY SHOULD AWAIT YOU WITH OPEN ARMS. ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET.

NYRA has expressed no interest in sharing Belmont Park with harness. The only issue that keeps hope alive for Yonkers is the states pari-mutal law, giving harness racing as first right to run night live racing.
 Faraldo has pitched a model that uses the 1 mile training track and builds a new grandstand, knowing Kay and company will not entertain harness racing at the main plant.

Pigman. If I was at NYRA I would have no incentive to give harness racing a home. So, If NYRA does nothing and Yonkers moves forward with securing a casino licence, Yonkers horsemen would have no venue and would not be able to lay claim to the night racing dates. Then, NYRA gets what they want with making no concessions.
