Didn't know it cost to bid for it . They lost it for a reason though and people wonder why? I think it's because we want to showcase the scenery mountains and all to all who watch on TV ... Would look kinda funny seeing Home Depot while they're running down the back stretch at Aqueduct in the background . HAHA. Actually loved it there when back in 1984 I think.
