Will there be a 2010 Racing Season for Saratoga Springs?  

 

David Patterson and NYRA answer YES!  NYS officials have promised, they will not allow the New York Racing Association to shut down the 2010 Racing Season.  David Patterson publicly announced any possibility of the 2010 Racing Season closing can be dismissed.  NYRA Horse Racing 2010 Racing Season

NYS will bailout the track with a loan of $17 to $25 million.  This will be enough money to get NYRA through the end of the year.  NYS has not developed a long term plan at this time.  

Rumors have been spreading, within the last few months that the 2010 Racing Season will not exist. Both Governor Patterson and NYRA officials have addressed the rumors, and have stated the financial woes are unlikely to affect the 2010 Racing Season.  

However negotiations still need to be made.  NYRA officials claims, NYS owes them money after the state taking control of NYCOTB.  Also they claim the OTB owes $17 million.  

Businesses in Saratoga rely heavily on the track revenue.  In the six weeks of the 2010 racing season revenue is expected to reach $230 million, along with 1500 jobs provided by NYRA.
