Hopefully, a positive sign for New York racing.
Major Purse Increases Expected at Aqueduct
The New York Racing Association has announced that total purses for the 2012 winter/spring meet at Aqueduct are expected to increase by approximately $8.6 million, or 36%, over this year’s meet.The new purse structure, which will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2012, is possible due to the expected fall opening of Genting’s Resorts World New York Casino at Aqueduct. During the first year of the casino’s operations, 6.5% of the revenue from the video lottery terminals must go to NYRA’s purse structure.
