The firm chosen to run Aqueduct Race Track’s racino earlier this year,
which was later disqualified, has won a court order bringing the latest
selection process to a halt.
The move threatens to delay naming
of a gaming operator indefinitely, which could spell financial disaster
for New York Racing Association. The organization that runs Saratoga
Race Course, Belmont Park and Aqueduct Raceway can’t survive without
the revenue expected to be generated from video lottery terminals
(VLTs) at Aqueduct.
