The End of Aqueduct?

From the Daily News (10/26/13):

“From Gov. Cuomo comes the welcome news that Aqueduct’s days as a shabby and underutilized thoroughbred track are likely numbered. In its heyday, Aqueduct drew tens of thousands of horse racing fans every day during its meet. Now, with racing’s steep decline and the availability of off-track wagering, it’s a hulking shell onto which has been grafted a video slot-machine casino.”

Although a shutdown would involve Belmont absorbing an unspecified amount of the Big A’s racing, it would still mean one less. Good news, indeed.
