NYRA seeking input from fans


OZONE PARK, N.Y. – The New York Racing Association will begin holding quarterly meetings seeking input from horseplayers, fans, and members of the local communities of its three tracks – Aqueduct, Belmont, and Saratoga. The first meeting is scheduled for Nov. 15 at 9:30 a.m. at Longshots, a simulcasting facility on the second floor at Aqueduct.

Christopher Kay, NYRA’s chief executive and president, said each quarterly meeting will be scheduled for a Saturday in order to make it convenient for people to attend.

The meetings will be one hour in duration and include Kay and members of NYRA’s management team. Those who cannot attend and wish to offer feedback may do so by email at nyra@nyrainc.com.

A second meeting will be scheduled at Aqueduct in late March, with the series continuing following the return of live racing to Belmont Park in the spring.
