Gural wrote letter qualifiers at Tioga June 1 and 3 and race Sunday June 7th. Vernon qualify June 2 and 4. Race Wednesday June 10. Expects purses to be the same as last year to start at both tracks due to money in purse account. Has money from before they were shut down.

Right.
The casino ran for 6 months after racing ended in September at Tioga.

Pig, Saratoga is opening up on June 7th..purses will be 25%-30% less, probably the latter. I know a lot of horsemen personally, and these guys will gladly sign up for this decrease at this time..I think all horsemen would sign up for that decrease, at this point

agree they would like to race for 30% less purse money . but how about 90% if no slot welfare?

With no slot welfare, I agree..but slot welfare is here to stay. Saratoga has money in the purse account to accommodate 30% decrease until the slots reopen..remember, only 2 days a week

YONKERS 2 DAYS A WEEK

45% PURSE DECREASE

UNTIL CASINO OPENS


Hell hardly worth the effort required to jab the needle in.  73cv.2

Local paper in Albany was anticipating in yesterday's edition that State affiliated casinos might reopen in late June.

A few native American casinos already open in ny.

We'll see. From what I be reading  ngc3, danger of serious co-19 is increased in indoor settings with a lot of people present. It seems the amount of viral load may be a factor in how acute virus impacts.

I'm staying away for awhile.
