Who is going to pay for this Yonkers at Belmont  pipe deam? Not MGM. Not NYRA. Once MGM has a casino license,  no more purse account.

Serious gambling businesses like MGM donít need or care about harness racing.....they want the other 99.9% of America.....itís not that complicated

I still think the Yonkers meet will be run on a mile track at Belmont. Small clubhouse and grandstand with sports betting. Makes the most sense. They could use the mile training track.

Why the fuck would Belmont ever agree to that?

What would be the benefit to NYRA? The only thing NYRA is interested in from Yonkers is their right to night racing.

Belmont controlled by NYRA which means New York State

up to the governor and he wants Aqueduct and Yonkers racing at Belmont last I heard and expanded gaming at those entities to maximize profits and therefore maximize tax dollars

soon?

transaction won't close for 6 months

Yonkers has a contract w/ horsemen and expanded gaming years away

not soon

sports betting won't raise purses much either at Meadowlands

MGM assumes all Yonkers contracts upon the sale, that's the way it works, all union contracts too

Jeffie said he needs to get his money back before he even looks at sharing sports betting revenues with horsemen.

Not quite

"Contrary to the misunderstanding of an earlier published
statement,Jeff assured us that the New Jersey horsemen
would participate in any revenue that would be generated
from sports betting as a much needed addition to the
Meadowlands purse account"
